Summary
  • This set of papers present the findings and recommendations of the 'Voices Against Violence' research project, which investigated the circumstances of women with disabilities who have experienced violence in Victoria. It explored the nature of violence against women with disabilities, the impacts of violence, barriers to safety, help-seeking behaviour, and the legal context and social services responses. The research drew upon interviews with 20 Victorian women with disabilities who have been subject to violence, as well as interviews with staff from the Public Advocate and literature reviews. The research found that women with disabilities experience not only the same kinds of violence that other women experience, but also disability-based violence - throughout their lives and in a variety of settings.
