Kaliya Franklin On Woman’s Hour, 10AM Today

September 11, 2012

She’ll be discussing Disabled Women Post-Paralympics:

At the Closing Ceremony of the Paralympics, Sebastian Coe said that following the huge success of the Games, ‘none of us will ever see disability in the same way again’, and this seems to be backed up by a Channel 4 poll, in which two thirds of people who watched the Paralympic coverage said it’s had a good impact on their perceptions towards people with disabilities. Will ordinary disabled women experience any improvement in their lives or in attitudes as a result of the Paralympics, or is all this inclusivity and understanding merely a temporary blip? Jane talks to Sophie Morgan, a model and artist who presented some of the Paralympic coverage on Channel 4, and Kaliya Franklin, a disability campaigner who writes a blog called benefitscroungingscum.
