  • July 31, 2018 ONE.pl and WEI Submission to the CRPD Committee for its Review of Poland

    This submission to the Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD Committee), drafted by Association for Women with Disabilities ONE.pl and WEI, addresses human rights violations against women and girls with disabilities in Poland. These violations include discrimination, stereotypes, exclusion from public participation, and lack of data collection; higher rates of gender-based violence; sexual and reproductive rights violations including forced sterilization and abortion as well as lack of access to respectful maternal health care, contraception, and abortion services and comprehensive sexuality education; discrimination in education and employment; and denial of legal capacity. This submission also outlines how Poland's reservations to the CRPD impact women and girls with disabilities and violate the object and purpose of the treaty, calling on Poland to withdraw those reservations. Read the publications:
