- 2019, Michelle R. Nario-Redmond, Ableism: The Causes and Consequences of Disability Prejudice, John Wiley & Sons, →ISBN:
- Ableism is your ability to find reasons to push us aside to keeps us in cages, leave our struggles out of the history pages … pretend we never existed. Ableism is when you say I'm the only disabled friend you've ever had. Ableism is when you say that and still don't understand why we feel invisible. Ableism is when you think I don't have a disability because you can't see it.
