Resources to accompany “Prevention of Violence Against Women with Disabilities: Workforce Resources for Action”
WDV have developed new resources to support workforces in the prevention of violence against women with disabilities
Violence against women with disabilities is a widespread human rights abuse in Australia. We know that gender inequality and disability inequality intersect to drive these exceptionally high rates of violence.
The Workforce Resources for Action have been developed to expand upon the important work of Change the Story by placing a disability lens over the gendered drivers of violence and the essential actions to prevent gendered violence.
By combining the evidence on what we know drives gender-based violence with the evidence and research on what we know drives disability-based violence, these resources can be used to take effective action in primary prevention of violence against women with disabilities.
