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.
