Sexual Assault Awareness MonthMonday, May 25 2015
Did you know that over 75% of cases of sexual assault of women with mental disabilities involved recurring episodes, and that most of the time the abusive person is a caregiver?
In recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, DAWN-RAFH Canada will be hosting a Facebook Forum on sexual violence and women with disabilities / Deaf women.
We invite women with disabilities, Deaf women, advocates and service providers to check out our forum and share your thoughts and experiences as a way to increase our collective understanding and ability to respond to this issue.
The forum will remain open until the end of May.
