Self-Advocacy for Women Living with Paralysis

Tuesday, February 23, 2021
3:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. EST

Cost: Free

Format: Webinar

Where: Online/Web-based

Sponsored By:

Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation National Paralysis Resource Center


This webinar will examine what self-advocacy is and where it can take place as well as explore disability stereotypes and gender socialization patterns that can present obstacles to practicing self-advocacy for women living with paralysis. By learning about these social inequalities, attendees will have greater awareness of power differences and be able to exert greater control over the oppression they face in their advocacy efforts. Themes on the intersections of advocacy, disability, gender, assertiveness, and empowerment will be presented, with concluding tips for women living with paralysis to increase their self-advocacy skills. The webinar will be presented by Lauren Presutti, a licensed psychotherapist and disability activist who is living with muscular dystrophy.
