Betsy Wurzel’s guest is Elsa Sjunneson a Media Studies Professor, Historian, Media Critic, Editor, Writer, Author, 2 Time Hugo Award Winner, 9 times finalist, and Aurora Award Winner for her editorial work on Uncanny Magazine.
Elsa was featured on PBS American Masters Documentary, “Becoming Helen Keller”. Elsa Sjunneson is a Deaf-Blind Disabilities Rights Activist, LGBTQ + Activist Writer, and Author of “BEING SEEN”, ONE DEAFBLIND WOMAN’S FIGHT to END ABLEISM.
Elsa discusses in depth why she wrote this book, how the movies and media do not portray disabled people accurately, what able-bodied people can do to help those with disabilities, and the discrimination in private schools and the workplace are still continuing. Elsa also discusses with Betsy how 85 percent of disabled women have been assaulted, how difficult it is to be believed that an assault happened, and how the medical community discriminates against the disabled by giving subpar medical care! They discussed how disabled people want to be treated with respect and dignity.
Betsy highly recommends this book which was an educational eye-opener for me and how she is involved in the disabled community!
