The report stated that disabled women were exposed to multiple discrimination and rights violations in the Covid-19 pandemic more than usual periods and other segments of the society due to their disability and femininity.

The report also stated that the extent of the impacts of the pandemic on disabled women could not be fully revealed due to the continuity of the pandemic process and the lack of sufficient data from countries, and emphasized that despite the clear gender-based consequences of the crises, intervention and recovery efforts tend to ignore the needs of women and girls.
