In this submission we highlight that women with disability are more likely to experience more severe and frequent violence, by a wider array of perpetrators. They are additionally likely to encounter more barriers in seeking protection and justice. Girls and young women with disability are exposed to a broad range of violence perpetrated by carers, parents, guardians, peers, educators, service providers, and others, including dating partners. Violence can take many forms, including structural and institutional forms of gender-based violence related to law, the state and culture.
