A Message from Our Executive Director

Dear Disabled Women’s Rights Supporter, 

I am excited and honored to bring you the latest — and my first, as new ED — round-up of WEI news and stories and to kick off the new year together with you! 

In this edition, you’ll read about the powerful partnerships, joint advocacy activities, inclusive organizing, and essential capacity strengthening efforts that have exemplified WEI’s work these past months and that we feel so very proud of. 

We just celebrated 10 years of powerful work for gender and disability rights, and now we are embarking on a crucial moment for our organization, as we begin turning the page, looking ahead, and envisioning the next decade for us, our movement and our community.  

We have grown and evolved tremendously in the past few years, and 2023 will be a year of continued transformation. I am happy to announce we will begin a new strategic planning process aimed at building on our expertise, strengthening our resilience, and most importantly, uplifting the voices and experiences of disabled women, girls and other gender diversities with disabilities around the world so we can advance our rights and justice. We will continue to work passionately to promulgate accessible intersectional feminist values for our global communities.  

Maryangel GRG Headshot I am grateful for your support and energized by this amazing opportunity to lead WEI into the future.  


Maryangel Garcia-Ramos Guadiana
