Advancing Rights for Women with disabilities
Partnership: This-Ability + Dance for Charity Foundation, House of Matriarch, Luxury Network, and Kenya Reproductive Health Matters
There is an invisibility of women and girls with disabilities. This is presented across various sectors but particularly within the health sector where there is a lack of access to information and services around sexual and reproductive rights. This-Ability sees this as a direct result of the asexuality associated with women with disabilities which has resulted in a lack of programming, interventions, policy development or investments in advancing reproductive health.
This-Ability seeks to create visibility for women and girls with disabilities. Their work is focused around challenging societal norms and perceptions around gender, disability and sexuality. This-Ability pushes boundaries through media and art, while creating spaces for thought provoking conversations that influence policy change.
