Beryl Potter was a reserved working-class mother of three living a decent life, or so it seemed, when a harmless slip and fall marked the unravelling of everything that she had known about herself and the world around her. Beryl Potter devoted herself to bettering the lives of other people with disabilities and made a tremendous contribution to disability awareness from the 1970s to 1990s.

This unparalleled biography offers readers with a complex portrait of a woman who defied and challenged gender and disability norms of her time, paving the way for disability justice.
