Recently, there’s been a growing focus on violence against women.

While the movement is welcome and has drawn attention to an important topic, a recent report has shown violence against women with disabilities is also disturbingly prevalent.

Unfortunately these women have been largely unrepresented in the campaign to end violence against women. One example is a recent dispute with Destroy the Joint where experiences shared by women with disabilities were blocked.

I spoke with Jess Cadwallader, Advocacy Project Manager at People with Disability Australia.
