Disabled people experience abuse and violence at extremely high levels, but this is in effect invisible because it is not acknowledged.
Domestic or any other form of disability violence and abuse is not OK.
Robyn Hunt talks about the New Zealand Disability Clothesline Project.
"The disability clothesline project is a way of breaking the silence about violence and abuse, enabling victims to give creative expression to their experiences as they use clothing as a canvas.
The disability clothesline project will gather our stories and experience; it will bring the invisible into the light."
Awards, a welcome and an invitation!
Happy New Year. We're a bit late with this news, but although Robyn didn't win the People's Choice Attitude Award she did win the Making a Difference award and the Supreme award! Congratulations Robyn!
We also welcome Wendi home from Australia where she has been working on disability issues, including violence towards disabled women. She will have a lot to share.
Robyn has been invited by UNESCO to be part of an experts roundtable in Beijing working on domestic violence issues, including disability.
