Disability and feminism: Goffman revisited
The author concludes that Goffman’s description of the difficulties involved in identity management for persons with disabilities are as true now as when Stigma was first written. However, Goffman was unaware of the interaction between disability and feminism when he wrote Stigma in 1963. Women with disabilities are subject to additional disadvantages in ways that many professionals may not recognize. Suggestions are offered for human services professionals when working with women who have disabilities.
