Women and girls with disabilities are twice as likely to experience violence as those without disabilities.

We are running a series of three (3) online workshops, aimed towards disability and social services workforces, to show how gender and disability inequality drives violence, and how you can prevent it. 

This is the registration page for Session 1: Introduction to Prevention of Violence against Women with Disabilities.

If you would like to participate in all three workshops, you can find more information and the registration page here.

What you will learn 

Introduction to Prevention of Violence against Women with Disabilities will tell you:

  • How gender and disability inequality intersect to create disadvantage for women with disabilities 

  • Impacts of violence against women with disabilities 

  • Why gender inequity is a key driver of violence against women with disabilities. 

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.
