A Right to Respect: Preventing violence against women with disabilities

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 and you can register for individual or all sessions:

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.
