Our Mission / Objective

Women With Disabilities Australia (WWDA) is the award winning, national Disabled People's Organisation (DPO) for women and girls with all types of disability in Australia. WWDA was established in 1995 as a very small, independent non-government organisation (NGO) run by women with disability for women with disability.


Over the past 20 years, WWDA has grown from a small group of disabled women concerned primarily with building individual confidence and self-esteem, to an internationally respected DPO enabling and representing the collective interests of women and girls with disability and promoting and advancing their rights and freedoms.


WWDA operates as a transnational human rights organisation - meaning that our work, and the impact of our work, extends much further than Australia. As a DPO, WWDA is managed and run by women with disability, for women and girls with disability.


WWDA represents more than two million disabled women and girls in Australia, has affiliate organisations and networks of women with disability in most States and Territories of Australia, and is internationally recognised for our global leadership in advancing the human rights of women and girls with disability.


WWDA's work is grounded in a human rights based framework which links gender and disability issues to a full range of civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights. It is this holistic, comprehensive human rights framework that WWDA works from and within, to promote and advance the human rights of women and girls with disability. Importantly, utilising this holistic framework in all aspects of our work enables us to demand accountability from Governments and other duty bearers in relation to recognising and addressing the violations of human rights experienced by women and girls with disability.


As the DPO for women and girls with all types of disability in Australia, WWDA is the recognised coordination point between Government/s and other stakeholders, (both nationally and internationally) for expertise, advice, collaboration, consultation and engagement with women and girls with disability in Australia.


The key purpose of WWDA is to promote and advance the human rights and freedoms of women and girls with disability. Our goal is to be a national voice for the rights of women and girls with disability and a national force to improve the lives and life chances of women and girls with disability.
