Are women with disabilities “vulnerable”? Far from it, says Keran Howe.
She doesn’t like the term, believing it makes the woman she has worked with as an advocate for more than 30 years seem passive, or submissive.
Instead, women with disabilities are targeted, says Howe, by people who use sexual abuse and family violence to control and intimidate them. And when they report their abuse they are often disbelieved.
