Women with Disabilities ACT, Women with Disabilities Australia, and Women with Disabilities Victoria have co-authored a submission to the federal Community Affairs Legislation Committee on the new proposed NDIS legislation.

This submission highlights our concerns about the bill and makes detailed recommendations for its improvement. On a broad level, we are concerned about the overwhelming gender inequality in the NDIS and we point to the need for any proposed legislative reform to uphold the rights of women* with disabilities.
