Violence Against Disabled Women Presentation

January 16, 2013

Wise Women logoWise Women, in partnership with GCVS

Saturday 26th January, 1pm – 3pm or Thursday 21st February, 7pm – 9pm,
The Albany, 44 Ashley St, Glasgow, G3 6DS.

This presentation is particularly useful to services working with disabled people and people interested in issues surrounding discrimination, violence and abuse. Wise Women pro-actively address women’s fears and experiences of violence and crime by providing free workshops to women living in local communities in Glasgow. In 2010 Wise Women completed a 2 year project working with women who have physical / sensory impairments and long term health conditions. The aim of this work was to provide disabled women with full and equal access to Personal Safety Courses addressing the additional and different types of violence, abuse and crime Disabled Women specifically encounter.  A full report was published in 2010 recording women’s experiences, the barriers they face when seeking support, the impact on physical, emotional and social health and accompanies a 40 minute power point presentation of these findings.
