This synthesis review contains key insights and lessons from the experiences of 22 diverse civil society and women’s rights organizations in various contexts that were supported by the UN Trust Fund special window to end violence against women and girls with disabilities between 2018 and 2023.
Women and girls with disabilities experience many of the same forms of violence all women and girls experience (e.g. psychological, physical, sexual and economic abuse). However, they suffer up to three times greater risk of rape, are twice as likely to be survivors of domestic violence and other forms of gender-based violence and are likely to experience abuse over a longer period and with more severe injuries than women without disabilities.The UN Trust Fund supports projects to end violence against women and girls with disabilities.
