Until More Disabled People Are in Position of Authority, We Will Not Reach Equality

Julie Fernandez | Posted 30.05.2014 | UK
Julie Fernandez

It is wonderful to see how much more confident young disabled people are today as they expect equality and rightly so. But in reality, these young people are not out and about in society yet. As a disabled adult, it is very hard to get a job, and very hard to access benefits. In fact, I would say that many disabled people in the UK still feel like second-class citizens. I am still shocked that for many people I meet, I am the first disabled person that they know. And often they start out with lots of negative stereotypes. I think that although we are definitely in a better position than we were twenty years ago, we are still fighting society's attitudes towards us.

As titles for pieces go, I'm aware this one fits all too snugly into the hyperbole driven world of internet opinion, but in order to make a point about how strongly I feel about Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's The Office (incredibly now 12 years old) I'll play along and set my stall out; I genuinely believe it to be the finest example of television ever broadcast.
