  • disability – Page 3 – Dr. Frances Ryan
    eventually need to address a disabled person s right to die whilst doing considerably more to provide the support needed for the millions of others to have a good quality of life It s a debate that s come round again this week as the Assisted Dying Bill gets its second reading in the House of Lords Tanni Grey Thompson has become a key voice in opposition being amongst a group of peers and campaigners who signed a letter to the Telegraph stating their concern that it would see vulnerable disabled elderly people treated as if their lives are worth less than those of everyone else For New Statesman I spoke to her about life in the Lords disability and conversations about death Disabled feminism on the margins May 25 2014 May 25 2014 francesryan18 Leave a comment In writing about feminism and disability and being a disabled woman I often think about the way the two cross over At times I ve looked at those issues abortion on the grounds of disability the forced marriage of people with learning disabilities the domestic abuse of disabled women But I m aware very much how little attention these subjects get and the way mainstream feminism is often portrayed as being entirely without the lives of disabled women This week I wrote the New Statesman essay It s not only steps that keep us out mainstream feminism must stop ignoring disabled women The awkward truth about attitudes to disability May 8 2014 francesryan18 Leave a comment I was sitting in a green room with a politician once and he asked me How long have you been like that He was referring I was aware after a few long seconds to my wheelchair I would like to say I said something suitable back the sort of retort that is both angry and subtle I didn t I answered in what felt much like the disability equivalent of a colleague stopping a meeting to ask how many men I d slept with and me answering because it seemed the polite thing to do He told me how sorry he was not for his question of course and we got back to being two supposed professionals on a workday 67 per cent of people feel uncomfortable when talking to a disabled person A fear of seeming patronising or saying the wrong thing is why most people feel awkward according to Scope s new research For this week s New Statesman column I wrote about awkwardness and how to treat disabled people as people Benefit cuts One Year On April 5 2014 July 24 2014 francesryan18 Leave a comment I don t buy into the idea that being on benefits is a lifestyle choice says one claimant I d much prefer to be in my old 38k job with a life of hope ahead of me instead of worrying about how to make half a loaf of bread an onion and half a bottle of ketchup

  • Job Seekers Allowance – Dr. Frances Ryan
    Sanjeev eligible for the disability unfit for work benefit employment and support allowance ESA As a DWP spokesperson confirmed to me this week that benefit is only available to under 18s if they have not only left school but also are living independently This is unwinnable Britain Where you can be old enough to have left school but be classed as too young for out of work benefits Where you can have a disability that stops you getting to a job interview but are not disabled enough to receive living allowance What is happening to Sanjeev sits within a wider landscape of the state s abandonment of young people In Wednesday s Guardian I wrote about what it means to be young working class and disabled 5 benefit changes the government don t want you to know about November 29 2013 November 30 2013 francesryan18 Leave a comment It used to be that when politicians wanted to bury bad news they d orchestrate its release to time with a distracting event Seeing Iain Duncan Smith publicly criticized for wasting at least 140 million of public money over Universal Credit at the start of this month it struck me how we ve slowly reached another level Unmitigated disaster Alarmingly weak These words were used to describe Universal Credit but could easily have been levelled at a number of largely unreported changes to the benefit system Nowadays bad news is buried by even worse news The sheer volume of inefficient and unethical changes to social security this Government has enacted means some of it doesn t even get noticed Which for a set of politicians hacking at vulnerable people s support systems is worryingly convenient So with that in mind for New Statesman this week I picked out some recent changes that
