Disability, like questions of race, gender, and class, is one of the most provocative among theorists and philosophers today. This volume, poised at the intersection of feminist theory and disability studies, questions the nature of embodiment, the meaning of disability, how policy plays out on those who have been labeled disabled, and how we define the norms of functionality or appearance when raising questions about mental and physical ability. The essays here bridge the gap between theory and activism by illuminating structures of power and how historical and cultural perceptions of the human body have been informed by and contributed to the oppression of women and disabled people.
