A Reading by Harilyn Rousso

A portrait by Harilyn Rousso on the cover of her book, Don't Call Me Inspirational: A Disabled Feminist Talks Back
Event Date: Thursday, April 25, 2013
Location: Humanities Building, Room 135

A reading by disabled feminist author, Harilyn Rousso, from her new memoir. 

For psychotherapist, painter, feminist, filmmaker, writer, and disability activist Harilyn Rousso, hearing well-intentioned people tell her, "You're so inspirational!" is patronizing, not complimentary. In her empowering and at times confrontational memoir, Don't Call Me Inspirational, Rousso who has cerebral palsy, describes overcoming the prejudice against disability--not overcoming disability.
