Negotiating Normality: The complexity of Showing (off) Bodies
Uppsala universitet, Sociologiska institutionen.ORCID iD: 0000-0002-3147-2321
2013 (English)In: Invisible Girl / [ed] Gun-Marie Frånberg, Camilla Hällgren & Elza Dunkels, Umeå: Department of Applied Educational Science Umeå University , 2013, p. 111-119Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The present chapter is based on a sociological qualitative study that focuses on disability, identities, and gender, specifically on conceptions of the body and gender among young women labeled as having an intellectual impairment. It deals with the ways in which young women labelled with intellectual impairment construct themselves. The interviewees use four different strategies to make themselves visible as fashionable young women of today, e.g. as non-disabled. The strategies are defined as: marks of resistance, standing out, blending in and female masculinity. These strategies comply with conceptions of fashion, and they are at the same time expressions of different marks of resistance, and ways of striving for independence in the sense of self-determination.
