A Right to Respect – Preventing Violence against Women with Disabilities Training

 

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

Register: by Thurs 26 March 2020 via: https://arighttorespect.eventbrite.com.au

This training will benefit people who work in the disability sector, local council, education, specialist organisations and other social service roles.

What you will learn:

  • Strategies and tools to prevent violence against women with disability
  • Why gender inequity is a key driver of violence against women with disability
  • Impacts of violence against women with disability
  • How gender and disability equitable practice can create change to end violence
  • Referral services which can assist in responding to women with disability who experience violence

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.
