Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights of Women and Girls with Disabilities
Women and girls with disabilities account for almost one-fifth of the world’s population of women,1 and they are just as likely to be sexually active as their peers without disabilities 2 despite inaccurate stereotypical views to the contrary. Accordingly, they have the same sexual and reproductive health (SRH) needs as women and girls without disabilities. Due to multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination on the basis of gender and disability, however, women and girls with disabilities face unique and pervasive barriers to full realization of their sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR).
