An original publication from The Women's Press

Drawing on her own and other experiences of disability, Jenny Morris, editor of Able Lives, confronts the nature of the prejudice against disabled people.

Pride Against Prejudice challenges the reality of being different, covering current and historical debates on the quality of disabled people's lives; the way disability is represented within Western culture; institutionalisation and independence; feminist research and 'community care'; and the politics of the disability movement.

For too long, non-disabled people have defined the experience of disability and had control over disabled people's lives.

Pride Against Prejudice has grown out of the increasing collective organisation of disabled people and is part of an emerging disability culture. Jenny Morris argues her case with energy, authority and conviction.
