We must include women with disabilities to achieve gender equality 

“Women are marginalised, and people with disabilities are also marginalised. So women like me can be hit with two sets of discrimination at once. We are less likely to be educated; have less access to health services; face more violence and sexual abuse; and we are often not given access to the decision-making tables. It’s even worse for those of us in developing countries. This has to change.”

Lucy Mulombi is the chair of one of few organisations of people with disabilities run by women, and chair of Kakamega County Disability Caucus in rural Kenya. Lucy took part in a programme run by the Sightsavers-led coalition Inclusive Futures and will join Sightsavers at the Women Deliver conference in Kigali from 17-20 July 2023.
