Women with Disabilities Victoria

WDV General Appeal

$
To support the objectives of Women with Disabilities Victoria (WDV).

 

Empower women – engage and empower women with disabilities to lead and influence their community
Influence policy – Influence government and the community to recognise and remove barriers to full participation by women with disabilities
Influence services – Educate and build the capacity of service systems and organisations to be accessible to women with disabilities.
 
Women with Disabilities Victoria (WDV) is an organisation of women with disabilities, for women with disabilities.

Our Vision is a world where all women are respected and can fully experience life.

Our mission is to advance real social and economic inclusion for women with disabilities in Victoria. We will:

be a voice for women with disabilities
create opportunities for women with disabilities to be visible and to be heard in their communities
build partnerships to deliver the best results for women with disabilities
engage the community to challenge attitudes and myths about women with disabilities.
We recognise that as women with disabilities we are among the most marginalised in our community. This is because the intersection of gender inequality and disability presents a situation of multiple levels of discrimination. This is where we focus our efforts.

We know that women with disabilities are strong and resilient. We have unique knowledge and understandings, and we make great leaders, because we draw on wisdom gained through our experience of discrimination and other challenges.
