Greetings all, I hope this message finds everyone doing well. I don’t typically share these types of postings, but I saw this research project and was struck by the fact that the principal investigator is herself blind. Please read below for the announcement and research opportunity.

> Hello,

> My name is Kimberly Aguillard. I am a blind doctoral candidate, recruiting participants for my dissertation on women with disabilities' experiences of violence in rural communities. I’m reaching out to you to request help reaching women with disabilities in rural areas. I have attached my study announcement. I am self-identifying as a blind researcher when I share the study announcement. I am happy to speak with you over the phone to answer any questions, and provide more detail.
>  
> I would appreciate if you could post this study announcement, and I am also interested in discussing the best avenues I can follow up on to reach women in rural communities.

> You qualify to participate if:
> You are at least 21 years old  
> You experienced abuse or violence at least one or more years ago while living outside a major metropolitan area. Abuse includes physical, sexual, or emotional threats to your personal safety
> You had the disability before the experience of violence
> Your disability makes a difference in how you see, hear, learn, understand, or move around
> This study involves an interview to gather information about women with disabilities who have experienced violence and abuse, while living outside a major metropolitan community. The goal of this research is to learn more about how women with disabilities who have experienced violence learn about, select, and access help when they live outside a major urban area. This research will also highlight strategies women with disabilities use to keep going, or build resilience. Information from interviews will help create awareness of this problem, and will lead to important recommendations for organizations that provide services to other survivors with disabilities.
> You will receive a small payment for your time and participation in this study.
