According to the European Institute for Gender Equality, 1 in 3 women has experienced physical and/or sexual violence in the European Union. The numbers are only higher for women and girls with disabilities, which face multiple and intersectional discrimination based on disability and gender. Deaf women and girls who are victims of domestic violence must have access to all mechanisms in place to ensure their protection as victims, from prevention to redress, as laid down in Articles 9 and 13 of the UN CRPD.
