Intersectional Disability Feminist activism

Embla Guðrúnar Ágústsdóttir and Freyja Haraldsdóttir founded Tabú in March 2014. Tabú is an informal space for self-identified disabled women to participate in activism, share their experience and knowledge with each other and tell their stories, both in saver spaces and publicly available on the web site of Tabú.

The aim of Tabú is also to open up discussions about things that on are often not allowed or shied away from in public talk about disability – things that are considered a taboo. That is done by publishing articles, giving presentations, organizing workshops and taking political action.

Tabú’s work is based on the principles of feminism, the Independent Living Movement, the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities, queer theory and ideas on intersectionality.
