Abstract

The purpose of this presentation is to analyze the concept of violence against women with disabilities using the concept of occupational injustice. Previous models explaining the issues involved in violence against women with disabilities are first explored. Then, specific incidents of violence against women with disabilities are examined according to how well they adhere to the criteria for the four pillars of occupational injustice which include occupational imbalance, occupational marginalization, occupational deprivation and occupational alienation. The overarching issue of power is also examined and all of these components are examined with relationship to health for women with disabilities. Finally, the presentation will conclude with suggested solutions for achieving occupational justice through empowerment through occupation and enablement through choice for women with disabilities who have been abused.
