My Favorite Women Inclusion Advocates
Maysoon Zayid is my latest role model in advocacy. Watch her TEDtalk. It’s funny, insightful, and yet another great reason to be committed to the independence of people living with disabilities. She’s upfront about her own experiences with discrimination and wittily points out the hypocrisies of our able-ist culture.
I have a weakness for strong, intelligent, female advocates. If you haven’t already, you should check out the work of Amy Sequenzia, who regularly contributes to Ollibean among other publications. Her twitter handle is a constant source of relevant, timely news.
Last but not least, Stella Young. Her down under charm, wit, and widespread activism make her one of my favourite people to follow online.
