This book explores gender-based violence and disability from the vantage point of resistance movements. Emphasis is placed on giving voice to the experiences of thirteen community organizers and self-advocates working to end gender-based violence. These stories, told from Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, Ghana, India, Kenya, United States, Nepal, and Yemen identify common challenges and transformative aspects of community organizing.

Dr. Tammy Bernasky is an Assistant Professor in the Department of L’nu, Political, and Social Studies at Cape Breton University. She has a PhD in Critical Disability Studies from York University. Using an intersectional approach, her research is focused on understanding the impacts of oppression and developing pathways to empowerment. She specializes in addressing gender-based violence in the disability community.
