Women and girls with disabilities are still at the margins of decision-making and work on gender equality, and their needs and voices often go unheard. The time has come to include disability in CEDAW and put an end to the invisibility they face.

This nomination by the Spanish Government is in response to requests from disability organisations through the Spanish Committee of Representatives of People with Disabilities (CERMI) and the International Disability Alliance (IDA).

Ana has a proven and strong personal commitment to women’s and girls’ rights and the expertise and experience to make a real difference on the CEDAW Committee.
