Advocacy, Activism and Coming-of-age: Hannah Diviney in Conversation with Fiona Murphy

A disability and women’s rights advocate, the face of the ‘Disabled Disney Princess’ campaign, and the one who called out Lizzo for using an ableist slur in her music. Most importantly, she’s a young woman with a battle cry that needs to be heard. Hannah speaks with Fiona Murphy about her memoir, I’ll Let Myself In.
