“Discrimination against deaf people happens every day, even within the deaf community” | NADJA
Canadian filmmaker Marie-Andrée Boivin shares her experience as a deaf woman and tells us about her fight against audism.
Audism is unavoidable when you’re a deaf person. It’s an unpleasant experience, too often humiliating and degrading. It’s a power imbalance at the expense of deaf people, and takes so many forms.
