With a lively panel discussion chaired by Dr Erin Pritchard, lecturer at Liverpool Hope University in the department of Disability and Education, panellists artist Jackie Hagan, artist Cheryl Martin and Tammy Reynolds will interrogate this theme further, looking at how stereotypical portrayals of disabled women affect our perception of disabled women in reality.
