C. Principal areas of concern and recommendations

Disadvantaged groups of women

36. The Committee regrets the lack of effective measures taken to address discrimination and violence faced by disadvantaged groups of women, such as indigenous and Afro-descendant women, migrant women, older women and women with disabilities, as well as lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex women, and other women facing multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination.

37. The Committee recommends that the State party adopt appropriate measures to address the particular needs of disadvantaged groups of women. The State party should provide comprehensive information and disaggregated data in its next periodic report on the situation of those women and the measures adopted to address their specific needs.
