International Women’s Day Event Proceeding
International Women’s Day is celebrated worldwide following the 1857GC struggle of the American women for equal pay for equal work. Since then, recognizable progresses have been made on women in the world of work although much more must be done. However, no or little progress has been observed among women with disabilities. The group had been neglected from the development programs and advocacy events designed for women. And yet, these groups face multiple levels of discrimination arising from gender inequality, disability and poverty. ENDAN in partnership with NOVIB and other affiliate organizations has colorfully celebrated the International Women’s Day with the purpose of advocating for the rights of women with disabilities. The event was organized on March 10/2017 at the Ethiopian National Cultural Center.
