Violence Against Women with Disabilities Study
The National Council for Women released the first national study on “Violence against Women with Disabilities” in February 2022, which is one of the first studies globally on such topic. The results of the study are based on surveying 6000 recipients of “Takaful and Karama” program, implemented by the Ministry of Social Solidarity. The study presents knowledge on the different forms of violence, its underlying causes, and the ability to access services as well as the experiences of women with disabilities in Egypt, focusing on the intersectionality between gender, disability and poverty.
The study was conducted by the National Council for Women and CAPMAS in partnership with UN Women, UNFPA and UNDP, with the generous support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Kingdom of Norway.
