February 2010

Expand view

"Women from non-English speaking backgrounds (NESB) with disability experience various forms of violence, however due to poor data collection and reporting, the incidence is difficult to estimate. The interaction of disability, culture and violence places women from NESB with disability in disempowered positions with poor access to culturally appropriate information and service provision. This report is a culmination of our individual advocacy work, several consultations with women from NESB with disability and carers who have experienced domestic violence and roundtable discussions with key policy makers and service providers"

et al

Expand view

This report presents "a two-phase project looking into disabled people’s experiences of targeted violence and hostility. The research has taken a broad approach to targeted violence and hostility against disabled people. The terminology around targeted violence and hostility is ill-defined, and terms such as abuse and harassment are often used interchangeably. In this report we have used ‘targeted violence and hostility’ as an encompassing term to include incidents involving verbal, physical, sexual and emotional violence, harassment and abuse that is directed towards disabled people"
