Sinister Wisdom 39: On Disability

On Disability

Sinister Wisdom 39: On Disability contains work from and about womyn whose lives are seriously disrupted by long-term conditions. Disabilities take place within contexts. Those contexts are usually designed to minimize the presence and the "inconvenience" of disabled folks. In the lesbian community we have, in fact, done a tremendous amount of work on access consciousness.
