Tara Flood: The Lightbulb Moment
Here Tara describes her first introduction to the Social Model of Disability in her adult life.
TranscriptBut the real, the light bulb moment inevitably – no, without a doubt, was having left the bank and then started working for a very odd organisation that gave advice to disabled people about disability equipment, as it was called, that I met a disabled woman who was really politicised, who opened the door to the Social Model. And, you know, I think – you cannot underestimate, I think, as disabled people, what that moment looks like.
