Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
For women with disabilities, violence by caregivers is very serious, all too common, and still nearly invisible. Special barriers, both physical and attitudinal, can make it especially hard for them to exit the situation. Activists are determined to make shelters and services responsive.  Gill Hague, co-director of the Violence Against Women Research Group at the University of Bristol, UK; Sharon Hickman, founder, Domestic Violence Initiative for Women with Disabilities, Denver, Colorado, USA.
