Violence against women with intellectual disabilities

Stop the violence now!

Women with disabilities experience violence at significantly higher rates than women without disabilities, more frequently, for longer, in more ways, and by more perpetrators; they have considerably fewer pathways to safety, and are less likely to report experiences of violence. This is especially true for women with intellectual disabilities, above all if they live in long-stay residential institutions.
