WEI Submission to Justice J.S. Verma Committee: Addressing Violence Against Women

5 January 2013

We write with respect to the importance of the inclusion of issues of concern to women and girls with disabilities as the Government of India considers amendments to laws, policies and practices to eliminate violence against women and girls.

Despite the implications for more than 500 million women and girls with disabilities and their families, issues concerning women with disabilities receive only limited, or even invisible, coverage in efforts to amend and modify laws, policies and practices regarding violence against women.

The Government of India can contribute to a more inclusive and effective awareness of violence against all women by including women with disabilities in the consideration of legal reform efforts in this area.
