Abstract

In this chapter, three disabled women challenge advertising representations of women with depression. Informed by feminist disability studies, I examine three particular advertisements on the topic of depression, as well as interpretations of the three ads by three women who experience depression in the United Kingdom. This analysis is extracted from a larger project in which I interviewed UK women with mobility, mental health, and visual impairments regarding representations of disabled women in advertising (Houston 2017). Here, I use this excerpt from my work and the occasion of this chapter to offer a primer on feminist disability studies.
