Policy Statement on PVAW

WDV developed a position statement for violence against women with disabilities.

The position statement is more in-depth than the Violence Fact Sheet, and is seen as particularly useful for policy makers, program managers and those interested in violence from the perspectives of both gender and disability.

The paper gives an overview of:

  • women’s experiences
  • examples of service initiatives
  • research
  • recommendations for action,
  • and a clear position on preventing and responding to violence against women with disabilities.
