Date: August 27, 2020
Report on the new WWDA website project: https://wwda.org.au/2020/08/a-report-on-the-our-site-website-project-is-now-available/
Women with Disabilities Australia (WWDA) launched a new website by and for women and girls with disability, called Our Site (https://oursite.wwda.org.au)
Our Site provides accessible information and resources across five key topics related to the rights of women and girls with disability:
Leadership and Participation
Decision-making and choices
Sexual and reproductive health and rights
Safety from all forms of violence.
Our Site also showcases the real life stories of over 40 Australian women with disability. The website is designed to be accessible to as many people as possible. It is compliant with international accessibility standards and site content can also be viewed in Easy Read.
WWDA undertook an inclusive co-design approach to the creation of Our Site to ensure that the design and development of the website was led and influenced by women and girls with disability at every stage. While created by and for Australian women and girls with disability, much of the content of Our Site is applicable to women and girls with disability across the world.
