Stephanie Woodward on “Stop Telling Me I’m Pretty for a Girl in a Wheelchair: How Your Words Contribute to Domestic Violence Against Women with Disabilities”
October 7, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Women with disabilities have a 40 percent greater chance of experiencing intimate partner violence and are 300 percent more likely to be sexually assaulted than women without disabilities. Additionally, research shows that women with disabilities experience more frequent and more severe acts of violence. Disability Rights attorney and activist Stephanie Woodward will present how disabled women encounter many barriers to seeking support, and how we, as a society, can and must change.
