Violence & women

We wish to put forward testimonies, legislations, news and all possible help, to fight against these intolerable violences. Whoever you are, you are not alone!

Today, unfortunately, the situation is that :

  • 4 out of 5 women with disabilities are victims of violence;
  • 34% of women with disabilities have been physically or sexually abused by their partner, compared to 19% of able-bodied women.
  • 54% of women with disabilities say they experience discrimination, compared to 27% of women with disabilities.
  • 57% of women recognized as having a disability are inactive*.

Violence against women with disabilities is not only due to their vulnerability and the difficulty of protecting themselves, it also produces disability. This project #stopviolencesfemmesethandicap has been set up to raise awareness of this situation. 

Discover a lot of information on the subject, share your good practices or exchange with peers on this platform, to help increase the autonomy of women with disabilities.
