‘Sometimes the coroners are our biographers’: It’s time for Australia to act

The Bolshy Divas describe themselves as “disability activists in the style of feminist masked avengers”.

In April, six divas appeared before the Senate’s community affairs committee for a hearing into the abuse of people with disability.

They arrived with a bundle of white roses. Taking turns, the divas read out 40 examples to illustrate the abuse and neglect that happens to Australia’s disabled population.
