A collection of fiction, essays, and poetry by physically handicapped women relates their varied experiences and struggle to overcome prejudice and achieve independence
Disabled women face even greater obstacles than do women generally, and physically challenged lesbians and women of color deal with yet another set of problems. This anthology of prose, poetry, fiction, and personal memoirs by 36 disabled British women provides an interesting view of their life experiences. The women speak about child rearing, relationships, discrimination, inaccessible buildings, and abuse by caregivers. Full of anger, pain, rage, hope, warmth, humor, and politics, their work shows readers daily life with its struggles, failures, and triumphs. This book empowers all women by giving them a sense of community and showing their strength, courage, and dignity to the world. A unique and interesting anthology; recommended for women's studies collections. Barbara M. Bibel, Oakland P.L., Cal. Copyright 1998 Library Journal Reviews
