The research finds that women with disabilities experience numerous inequities and injustices, and recommends for domestic violence and disability services to bridge the philosophical and service delivery gaps between the domestic violence and disability communities and to provide some of the practice, policy, and training resources necessary to enhance and speed these efforts.
