GREAT DISABLED WOMEN and THEIR WORK

Harilyn Rousso:

Domestic Violence Initiative
Denver, CO
Founded in 1985 for women with disabilites. DVI was created by Sharon HIckman who saw that disabled women were not being included in the local shelters and it has blossomed from there. DVI co-wrote a manual with NCADV called "Open Mind Open Doors" that is a good primier for agencies looking to make themselves accessible to women with disabilies. We also have also promoted the knowledge that non-disabled women are more often disabled from the violence in domestic situations.
