In January 2o17 WWDA prepared a submission on behalf of DPOA, to the Special Rapporteur on violence against women, its causes and consequences, Dubravka Šimonović. The submission was written to assist with informing the Special Rapporteur’s official visit to Australia from 13 to 27 February 2017. In addition, WWDA met with the Special Rapporteur in Hobart, Tasmania, to discuss the particular situation of Australian women and girls with disability and the multiple, systemic and intersectional forms of violence and discrimination they experience. Copyright WWDA 2016.
