New: International Network of Women with Disabilities Listserv

via Ambertracker:

A new listserv has been set up for women with disabilities around the world interested in international treaty work. Here is the listserv summary:

The participants in a global Summit on the Rights of Women with Disabilities, held in Quebec, Canada, in August 2008, launched a global network of women with disabilities, which aims to include women with ALL types of disabilities from ALL over the world. The goals of the network are to share our knowledge and experiences, speak up for our rights (through the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) and the human rights framework), bring about change and inclusion in our communities, and empower women with disabilities to be leaders of today and tomorrow. We invite ALL women with disabilities to join us and we will achieve these goals TOGETHER.
