In early 2012, WWDA was invited to present the Keynote Address on ‘Sexual and Reproductive Rights of Women and Girls with Disabilities’ at the International Women with Disabilities Conference, held in Madrid from June 27th to June 29th 2012. The Conference was hosted by the Spanish Committee of Representatives of Persons with Disabilities. WWDA was invited to showcase, on the international stage, our organisations internationally lauded work in the area of the sexual and reproductive rights of women and girls with disabilities. Specifically, the Conference organisers requested that WWDA “present the excellent and significant work you are doing in the fight against forced sterilisation and coerced abortion of women and girls with disabilities.” This Paper ‘Moving Forward and Gaining Ground: The Sterilisation of Women and Girls with Disabilities in Australia’ by WWDA’s Executive Director Carolyn Frohmader, was presented at the Conference on behalf of WWDA by Christina Ryan. The paper was also presented by Karin Swift on behalf of Women With Disabilities Australia (WWDA) at the National Symposium on Women With Disabilities, ‘Critical Reflections on the Status of Women with Disabilities in a Globalised World’, UNSW, Sydney, 10 August 2012.
