Why Is Media Coverage Of Violence Against Disabled Women Still Scant?


3
If you search on Google to find media coverage on violence against women in India, you will find numerous results but if you try to find out media coverage on violence against women with disabilities in India, I can bet, you won’t see more than 4 to 5 results. Other results would either show articles based on the issue or reports published by Human Rights Network or the research results of social science researchers.
Does this mean that there are no cases of violence against disabled women or are such assaults not reported to the police or is the media not interested and well trained to cover this sensitive subject?
