Title: Discrimination and access to employment for female workers with disabilities
Author: European Parliament: European Parliamentary Research Service
Publisher: EU, 2017
Series/Date: Study June 2017

Source Type: Report
ISBN: 978-92-846-1237-6
Notes: The aim of this study is to exploit existing data and information on the access of women with disabilities to the labour market, in order to assess how multiple discrimination – gender and disability – affects the employment opportunities of these women.

In addition, the study analyses whether and how the EU legislative and national policy frameworks address the multiple discrimination faced by women with disabilities. This combines a gender mainstreaming approach, such as the internalisation of a gender perspective in all disability policies and legislation, with specific measures targeted to women with disabilities.

The study also includes clear indications on implementation and monitoring mechanisms. The analysis is based on available European comparative data and in-depth analysis of seven European Member States.
