Women with Disabilities Australia (WWDA) has just launched a Youth Network for young women aged 13 to 30, with the aim of empowering these young people to achieve the best they can despite their disabilities.

The WWDA Youth Network will:

* Provide women and girls in Australia with easy-to-understand human rights information;
* Ensure young women are kept up-to-date with relevant events involving human rights;
* Inspire young women with disabilities to do more by informing them of stories of  achievement by outstanding women with disabilities; and
* Encourage the empowerment of young women and girls.

Visit the WWDA Youth Network Facebook page. The network is coordinated by Cashelle Dunn.
