Summary
"Susan Wendell has lived with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) since 1985. In The Rejected Body, she connects her own experience of illness to feminist theory and the literature of disability." "The Rejected Body argues that feminist theorizing has been skewed toward non-disabled experience, and that the knowledge of people with disabilities must be integrated into feminist ethics, discussions of bodily life, and the criticism of the cognitive and social authority of medicine."--BOOK JACKET
