As part of the «Living after Violence» project, Inclusion Europe has published a study on how women with mental disabilities deal with violence they have experienced in institutions after their release. They told us how they coped with these experiences when they left the institution. This work is funded by the Open Society Foundations. Recording of the seminar organized with EDF in November 2020. We also ask women from other European countries about their experience. See all the articles on life after violence, institutions and violence against women. The report was based on in-depth interviews with 10 women. The report «Living After Violence» is available in: women with disabilities experience violence at significantly higher rates than women without disabilities, more often, longer, in more ways and more offenders; they have far fewer means of safety and report violent experiences less often. This is especially true for women with mental disabilities, especially when they live in long-term residences. .
