Maysoon Zayid On Women With Disabilities

February 21, 2020

Maysoon Zayid is an American actress and comedian of Palestinian heritage. Dr.Liisa Kauppinen is a prominent Finnish campaigner with an international career advocating the rights of women with disabilities. What links them is that they both live their lives with a disability; Maysoon with cerebral palsy, Liisa with deafness – and both are determined not to let their disability stop them in any way. They’re both guest speakers at an international conference on people with disabilities due to be held today in Vienna. They agreed to speak to BBC Newsday, ahead of the event. The conversation began with Maysoon explaining the importance of gaining leadership as someone living with disability.
