Combating violence against Women: the Role of Women with Disabilities (FR)


(Past event)


Free, virtual conference, October 8, 2021


“Living at the intersection of sexism and ableism, women with disabilities more often face violence and discrimination. Their access to support and protection is often confronted with barriers. Yet, despite all this, they are not powerless and often successfully resist such violence.

This conference seeks to contribute to overcoming the divisions that may exist between the disability sector and the “anti-violence” sector, for an intersectional approach to the prevention and fight against violence against women with disabilities. It also aims to give voice to women with disabilities, and thus draw political attention to their realities on this issue.”
