Colloquium on women's rights and 'disabilities'
April 2, 2013
A colloquium hosted by UCT's Disability Service has highlighted several pertinent topics with regard to violence against women. The title of the colloquium, At the Intersection, revolves around connections between violence against women with disabilities, HIV, sexual orientation, transnational refugees, and race and gender issues.
The event was opened by the director of the UCT Transformation Services Office (TSO), Glenda Wildschut, who said that the colloquium was a way to bring together the three different units of the TSO: the HIV/AIDS Institutional Co-Ordination Unit (HAICU), the Discrimination and Harassment Office (DISCHO), and the Disability Service.
