Women With Disabilities ACT is passionate in our efforts to highlight the lived experiences of all those who have been impacted by systemic gender oppression – including trans women, intersex people, non-binary, gender diverse and gender non-conforming individuals. WWDACT is an intersectional feminist human rights organisation and believes in the importance of diversity and inclusivity as central to the feminist movement.
As part of being an inclusive organisation WWDACT commits to:
prioritising and uplifting the voices and experiences of trans, intersex and gender diverse individuals
out reaching to trans, intersex and gender diverse individuals to capture their experience
ensuring all our communications, events and resources are inclusive
maintaining a team that is trans, intersex and gender diverse aware
supporting trans, intersex and gender diverse individuals to take positions of leadership within our organisation
taking immediate action against discriminatory behaviour in our spaces, at our events or within our work
WWDACT’s membership welcomes all women and gender diverse individuals who have experienced or are currently experiencing gender oppression. Self-definition is at the discretion of the individual.
Cisgender men (men who are not trans, intersex or gender diverse) are welcome to sign up as Associate Members. However, cisgender men cannot become Full Members of WWDACT.
WWDACT does not tolerate discrimination against trans, intersex and gender diverse individuals. WWDACT reserves the right to withdraw membership to individuals who do not uphold WWDACT’s inclusive values.
