16 Days of Activism - Day 16

Updated: Dec 11, 2019

“It is estimated that as many as 40% of women with disabilities experience sexual assault or physical violence in their lifetimes and that more than 90% of all people with developmental disabilities will experience sexual assault.” -(Univ. of Michigan 2018)

It is a basic human right for ALL women & girls to live a life free of rape & violence, not just able-bodied women and girls. #16Days #orangetheworld #humanrightsday #LinkUp2EndGBV
