Disability Rights

DAISY - 2013
Rate this:
Through an examination of employment, education, transportation, telecommunications, and health care, this survey finds that, while important advances have been made, Canadians with disabilities still experience significant barriers in obtaining their human rights. Argues that disability is not about “faulty” bodies that need to be fixed but about the institutional, cultural, and attitudinal reactions to certain kinds of bodies, contending that neoliberal ideas of independence and individualism are at the heart of the continuing discrimination against “disabled” people. Achieving disability rights is possible through universal design, disability supports, social and economic assistance, and a sense of belonging.
