These Haunting Posters Break the Silence on Disabled Women with Abusive Partners

(Content Warning: Intimate partner violence, rape, abuse)

When you think of a survivor of intimate partner violence, does a certain type of person come to mind?

We know that intimate partner violence can affect people of all races, genders, sexual orientations, and physical abilities. But many people’s voices get left out of our conversations on IPV – including disabled women’s.

These posters from Women’s Aid UK helps break that silence. They show how intimate partner violence can show up in disabled women’s lives, and how the cycle of violence is allowed to continue because of society’s ableist structures and misconceptions.

But they also offer hope – the reminder that support is available if you or someone you know is being abused, and you’re not alone.
