Submission to the CEDAW Committee on the Rights of Indigenous Women and Girls

This submission presents an overview of the main barriers faced by indigenous women and marginalized genders with disabilities to fulfil their human rights at the intersection of gender and disability. It also includes the violations that stemmed from the impact of COVID-19 on their lives, given the urgent need to respond to this issue. Additionally, it highlights how existing human rights standards guide States towards addressing these barriers. The submission concludes with recommendations that we hope will help inform the forthcoming General Recommendation from the CEDAW Committee.
