‘A lot of feminism has been about reclaiming the male gaze. But, disabled women make a good point – what if we never had the gaze in the first place?’
“The disabled body is always seen as a public body. It’s always seen as a spectacle. People think they have the right to look at it, to categorize it, and then to dismiss it and then to look away…” Ju
‘The disabled experience is an inherent rebellion for we live against the desire that we should not’
Without discussing issues that directly impact disabled women, feminism will never be a movement for all.
A feminist theory of disability would liberate not only disabled women but also non-disabled women because the theory of disability is " the theory of the oppression of the body by a society and its culture."
