October 06, 2017 -- manager

Elizabeth Barnes' theory of disability (presented in her 2016 book The Minority Body: A Theory of Disability, published by Oxford UP) was cited in a Washington Post article. The article describes recent developments in the intersex rights movement as "in step with the larger disability rights movement, which argues for replacing assumptions of 'bad-difference' with acceptance of 'mere-difference,' in the terminology of philosopher Elizabeth Barnes."
