Simi Linton

Disabled Woman at Large
Disabled people are everywhere these days – on the bus, on supermarket checkout lines, in the voting booth and at the movies. Emerging from back wards and segregated institutions, this constituency has become a visible presence in the social landscape, and a more persistent and unsettling element in political and cultural arenas. Simi Linton has been an active participant in this collective coming out over the past 40 years

Author of the memoir My Body Politic and Claiming Disability: Knowledge & Identity, her work is focused on taking new ideas about disability into the public realm.
As a consultant and speaker, she has brought this knowledge to bear on disability studies, disability rights, and on the vibrant disability arts movement.

Christian von Tippelskirch and Simi Linton are the Producers and Directors of the documentary, Invitation to Dance - An exuberant, powerful film about Simi’s life as a disabled woman, and the emergence of the disability rights movement over the last 40 years.
