Disabled Woman at Large
Disabled people are everywhere these days – on the bus, on supermarket checkout lines, in the voting booth and at the movies. Emerging from back wards and segregated institutions, this constituency has become a visible presence in the social landscape, and a more persistent and unsettling element in political and cultural arenas. Simi Linton has been an active participant in this collective coming out over the past 40 years
Author of the memoir My Body Politic and Claiming
Disability: Knowledge & Identity, her work is focused on taking new ideas about disability into the public realm.
As a consultant and speaker, she has brought this knowledge to bear on disability studies, disability rights, and on the vibrant disability arts movement.
Currently, Simi Linton and Christian von Tippelskirch are Co-Producing/Directing a documentary entitled, Invitation to Dance. The film is about Simi’s life as a disabled woman, and the emergence of the disability rights movement over the last 40 years.
