WWDA Position Statement 2: The Right to Decision-Making (December 2016) [DOC] [PDF]

The ability to make decisions, big and small, about every aspect of our lives and what we do is a fundamental human right. The decisions and choices that we make enable us to express our views, our personalities, our desires, our preferences, as well as our thoughts on what is important to us in life. Too often however, women and girls with disability are not allowed or supported to make their own decisions and choices, ranging from small choices about what to eat and what to wear, to the more important life choices, like where to live, with whom and whether or not to have a partner and/or children.
