Leaving No One Behind: Don’t Forget Deaf Women! Importance of Reproductive Rights of Deaf Women and Sign Language-based Communication
17th November 2023 - 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Indeed, Deaf women tend not to be allowed to make their own decisions about their reproductive health, including family planning. They experience more unwanted pregnancies. Some may even be deprived of their right to parenthood. This deprivation is worsened by the lack of access to sign language based communication.
This side event aims to raise awareness of issues faced by Deaf women and enhance the use of sign language to enable Deaf women’s access to reproductive health services.
When: 17th November 2023
Time: 4pm – 5:30pm NZ Time
