Shakira Hussein: Talking Visible and Invisible Disability/Illness

Wednesday, 4 November 2020 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm

Shakira Hussein joined the show to discuss invisible and visible disability/illness. We ask about the usefulness of using these terms and also talk about how to make space for all experiences in the disability community.


Shakira Hussein is the author of From Victims to Suspects: Muslim Women Since 9/11 and a contributor to the anthology #MeToo: Stories from the Australian Movement. She is a research fellow at The University of Melbourne, and has published on topics including racism, gender violence and disability.
