Making A Splash / by Rosemary Scully. - 90 pages : illustrations (some colour) ; 25 cm

"Following the international movement, disability rights in New Zealand began to gain momentum in the early 1980s. At the forfront was Rosemary Scully, founding member of the self-advocacy group, People First, and a committed spokesperson for people with learning/intellectual disabilities. Now retired, Rosemary has set out to make sure what she has learned in more than three decades of self-advocacy is not lost. 'Makinf a Splash' documents Rosemary's personal experience of being an activist at a time of rapidly changing attitudes and perceptions, leading to a major political and social change. This is an important book for self-advocates, academics, researchers and anyone who wants to better understand what lies at the very heart of disability rights." - BOOK JACKET
