Victoria Pitts-Taylor podcast

This is an interesting podcast, where Victoria Pitts-Taylor (Professor of Sociology at Queens College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York) explains what it means to do feminist disability studies, in an accessible way. Queer activism, intersex activism and heteronormativity get mentioned, and the discussions gets more interesting around half-way, when Pitts-Taylor clarifies gender/sex and refers to epigenetics, brain and gender.

There is even some suggested reading: “Feminist Perspectives on Disability”  and “Misfits: A Feminist Materialist Disability Concept”
