This session will explore the way we talk about women and disabilities. We will explore how the mainstream media and pop culture still taboos SEX when it comes to them. We will go through great examples brought to the session by women with different disabilities, nationalities and backgrounds, of how we can start changing the diversity conversation in what comes to women with disabilities regarding sex, beauty and fashion in pop culture and mainstream media.
