In Nigeria, due to widespread discrimination, extensive rights violations, neglect and stigmatization, women and girls living with disabilities are at 3 times greater risks of suffering physical, sexual and economic abuse compared to women and girls without disabilities. This risk is further exacerbated by a lack of information and the limited capacity of women living with disabilities to assert their sexual and reproductive rights, report rights infringements/violations and demand a more inclusive justice system that caters to their unique needs. WRAHP at the end of her Project “Amplifying the voices of women and girls with Disabilities (WGDs) survivors against SGBV in Ebonyi and Lagos states.’’ In February 2023 with support from the African Women’s Development Fund (AWDF) produced and distributed 2000 copies of her policy brief to support public engagement with key influencers and demand improved justice services for all cases of SGBV affecting women and girls with disabilities.
