Alison John and the UWTSD Inclusion Conference

The wonderful Alison John attended and spoke at the UWTSD Inclusion Conference today! I would really recommend any practitioner to take a look at her work.

Here is her campaign to 'Liberate a Loo.'

'Toilets are not "Disabled!" If anything they may be temporarily impaired in some way, a broken chain, loo set, no mirror, no sanitary protection! I could go on. But the toilet is not discriminated against.
The term Disabled is used to describe an experience that can happen to particular people within our communities.
We accept that some people have significant impairments, and we as a society do discriminate against them and therefore we do Disable People.
This national movement is about changing the language we use to describe people and things. I would suggest that the term "Accessible Toilet" describes more accurately what it is, the term also suggest anyone who requires a little more space could use it.'
