In order to showcase the breadth of gender-based violence and its link to gendered inequalities, the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) and Fondation Jean Jaurès join forces for this series of publications on the fight to eliminate sexist and sexual violence.

In this article, Pirkko Mahlamäki (European Women’s Lobby Board Member from 2016 to 2021) focuses on the various forms of violence against women and girls with disabilities.

She offers an overview of their scope and the international frameworks in place to combat them before concluding with concrete policy recommendations to tackle this multi-layered reality.
