Equal Too: Achieving Disability Equality

Equal Too: Achieving Disability Equality

The Seneca Women Podcast Network is now featuring Equal Too: Achieving Disability Equality. Equal Too is a special six-part series produced by Harder Than You Think, creators of the double Emmy Award winning documentary Rising Phoenix and P&G Studios. Equal Too provides a series of highly entertaining, stimulating and well informed podcast episodes setting new standards of how we think about and discuss disability. Host and executive producer Sophie Morgan and executive producer Sinéad Burke will be talking about key issues, questions and topics around disability. Throughout the series they will be challenging perceptions, celebrating success by talking to the most informed and most famous professionals, influencers and activists such as Jameela Jamil and RJ Mitte. We will have a long term and enduring conversation about key themes of disability, seen through the lens of the Paralympic Games. The question we want to answer is how can the incredible decade that lies ahead of the Paralympic Movement help to transform the world for those who do and do not have a disability? If you want to follow the Equal Too story and join the conversation, go to htyt.world where you will also find the transcript and video versions of the podcast, along with subtitles and a BSL signed version in the coming days.
