Human rights workbook for young women and girls with disability

WWDA Youth Network has created the Human Rights Workbook to help young women and girls with disability learn about their human rights. If you are a woman or girl with disability and would like to learn more about your human rights and how they can be used to achieve change in your life or the lives of other women and girls with disability, this Workbook is for you.

The Workbook
The Human Rights Workbook for Young Women and Girls with Disability is a comprehensive human rights toolkit. It was originally developed for a human rights workshop for young women and girls with disability. We have now made it available to everyone who wants to learn more about their human rights! 
In the workbook, we focus on two key human rights conventions: 
  • The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) 
  • The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Violence Against Women (CEDAW) 
In each section, you will find:
  • Info about each convention
  • A snapshot of all the articles in each convention
  • Detailed explanations of the articles in each convention.
  • Reflection questions to help you think about how each article applies to your life
  • Links to other WWDA and WWDA Youth Network Resources
We've also included some links to self-advocacy tools to help young women and girls advocate for their rights, along with information on where you can get advocacy and legal support.
You can download the workbook below or vial this link.
