This paper argues that there are unique issues for women with disabilities who are abused or subjected to acts of violence. Not only are women with disabilities more vulnerable to abuse but they are even less able to seek recourse to help. The paper offers an analysis of violence committed against women with disabilities and explores some key issues such as myths held by society about women who have disabilities. Keyword: Women
