About the Conference

To celebrate International Women’s Day, Campus Law Centre is organizing a National Seminar on ‘Women with Disabilities: Law and Policy’ on 10th March, 2018.

The purpose of the Seminar is to highlight those issues where the gender and disability interact with each other. It aims to promote an understanding of disability issues and challenges faced by women with disabilities at national and international levels.

The primary objective is to analyse the extent to which the law and the legal system have responded to the needs of women with disabilities. Hence, it seeks to provide a platform for feminists and disability researchers and activists to share their learning and perspectives on contemporary issues relating to the legal rights of women with disabilities.

  1. Understanding Feminist Perspective of Disability with Key Issues.
  2. Analysing the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, 1979 (CEDAW) from Disability Perspective.
