Women Enabled International's accountABILITY Toolkit

View this page in another language

Women Enabled International’s accountABILITY Toolkit seeks to empower women with disabilities and organizations working on their behalf to make use of available U.N. human rights mechanisms. Bringing the voices and experiences of women and girls with disabilities to the U.N. human rights system is essential to hold States accountable for their human rights obligations and to advance the rights of women and girls with disabilities worldwide.

The toolkit consists of a series of briefing papers and fact sheets, available in Microsoft Word and PDF formats:


  • A guide to advocacy with the U.N. human rights system;
  • A summary analysis of U.N. human rights standards on sexual and reproductive health and rights;
  • A summary analysis of U.N. human rights standards on the right to be free from gender-based violence;
  • Three fact sheets summarizing how civil society can engage with UN treaty bodies, UN Special Procedures, and the Universal Periodic Review.
  • New! Regional Guides and Fact Sheets on the African Human Rights System.

Please download the accountABILITY Toolkit documents, free of charge. English and Spanish versions are available in PDF formats and in Microsoft Word formats for people who prefer the accessibility features of Word. Some of the Fact Sheets are available in Arabic and Chinese as well.
