TRANSCRIPT ASHA HANS ‘Hi everyone. It’s good to be part of your great meeting. I just bring a few thoughts on violence against women with disabilities to all of you. This is something that has been a core concern for many, many years, even as a student in my Master’s theses. But it was in 2003 when I wrote my book on disability, gender and identity, that one of the articles that Australian woman, Michelle La Fontaine, wrote on disability, really really highlighted something that had been part of the disability movement, but still there was very little understanding on it, in terms of academic.

Prof Asha Hans was a key note speaker at this mega event in Jodhpur,Rajasthan.

the development of disability as a political identity, and developed. with which disabled people, and Disability Studies in particular, have to. engage. comparisons with the women's movement and the civil rights movement.

The book helped to mainstream the neurodiversity movement, which celebrates autism as an identity. The neurodiversity movement also promotes a ‘social’ rather than ‘medical’ model of disability – the former is said to be less stigmatising and more tolerant and inclusive. A thriving community of ‘neurodivergent’ people has emerged and is especially vocal online. The inevitable result of de-medicalising something as serious as autism is that people start to use the condition in much the same way as transgender identities – to achieve a much-vaunted victim status and to boost the self-esteem of the needy and narcissistic.
