Review

'Finally we have sophisticated feminist disability work that moves beyond social construction of gender and disability... Highly recommended.'--P.A. Murphy

The concepts are clearly defined, allowing the reader to keep pace with the wealth of ideas and subjects discussed This work significantly demonstrates the autonomy and agency of Women in creating their own embodiment in a society that pushes for a strict standard of how women should look and act. - Ashley Crouch - Journal of Religion and Culture vol 26:1-2:2016"

Finally we have sophisticated feminist disability work that moves beyond social construction of gender and disability Highly recommended. - P.A. Murphy - Choice Magazine vol 52:01:2014"

Becoming Women is a rare gem for disability studies that grounds complex theory within the personal narratives of women with disabilities . The book highlights the need for cultural change in viewing disabled bodies, particularly within medicalized caregiving settings. - Kaley Roosen - Canadian Journal of Disability Studies vol 3:03:2014"
