Women, Girls, and Gender Non-Conforming People with Disabilities — Know Your Rights! Gender-Based Violence during the COVID-19 Pandemic

For people with disabilities, Gender-Based Violence (GBV) can sometimes take unique forms like abuse by a support person; withholding of medication or an assistive device; or denial of necessities like food, money, and toileting support. GBV can happen once or many times. Perpetrators — the people who commit this violence — can include intimate partners (like a girlfriend or a husband), family members, caregivers, support staff, service providers, teachers, the police, or others. The perpetrator may be someone you know, but not always. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the number of people experiencing or at risk of GBV, particularly people with disabilities.
