internally many OPD-s are not gender sensative. Mostly decision-makers within OPD-s are men. OPD-s do not have enough resources to be searching for opportunities to engage in gender equality discussions. Many of these discussions take place in inaccessible formats and venues. Externally there is lack of proactive action from those working on gender equality issues to involve persons, especially women with disabilities. Women with disabilities do not make decisions in most of women’s organizations.
