Indonesia

Dwi Aryani serves as the Program Officer for the Disability Rights Fund and Disability Rights Advocacy Fund in Indonesia, where she has been working for over a decade to build an inclusive, gender-transformative movement. Her recent victories include supporting grantees led by women with  disabilities to push legislative reform and build  constructive dialogue with feminist organizations. Dwi also has personal experience fighting for justice –   she won a landmark discrimination case in 2017 against an airline that refused to carry her as a wheelchair user traveling alone. Nearly 50,000 petition signatures and a lengthy court case later, Dwi won the battle.
