Media Portrayals of People with Disabilities
The ways in which individuals and groups are portrayed in popular media can have a profound effect on how they are viewed by society at large. This tool represents an attempt to catalogue the representation of people with disabilities in motion pictures and literature. Many of those representations are inaccurate, and some are offensive. Their inclusion in this tool is intended to stimulate discussion and should by no means be considered an endorsement of their accuracy or appropriateness.
