A Right to Respect

About this Event

Women and girls with disabilities are twice as likely to experience violence as those without disabilities. This online workshop, aimed towards disability and social services workforces, will show how gender and disability inequality drives violence, and how you can prevent it.

The training will be delivered over three sessions:

• Session 1: Introduction to Prevention of Violence against Women with Disabilities

• Session 2: Drivers of Violence and Essential Actions

• Session 3: Prevention in Action

What you will learn

Session 1: Introduction to Prevention of Violence against Women with Disabilities

  • How gender and disability inequality intersect to create disadvantage for women with disability
  • Impacts of violence against women with disability
  • Why gender inequity is a key driver of violence against women with disability

Session 2: Drivers of Violence and Essential Actions

  • How our everyday actions and practice can contribute to violence against women with disability
  • How gender and disability equitable practice can create change to end violence
  • Strategies and tools to prevent violence against women with disability

Session 3: Prevention in Action

  • How we can be active bystanders to prevent violence against women with disability
  • How primary prevention can inform the safe management of disclosures of violence against women with disability
  • Referral services which can assist in responding to women with disability who experience violence.

Please note: These three sessions are consecutive and each will build on the learnings of the previous session. Please do not sign up to attend sessions 2 and 3 if you cannot attend session 1.

The training is co-facilitated with an expert in violence prevention and a woman with a lived experience of disabilities. It is evidence-based, aligning with the latest research on disability, Our Watch’s Change the Story, and the Preventing Family Violence & Violence against Women Capability Framework.
