Author Harilyn Rousso reads from her memoir, "Don't Call Me Inspirational." A psychotherapist, painter, feminist, filmmaker, writer and disability activist, Rousso has cerebral palsy. When well-intentioned people tell her that she is "so inspirational," she finds it to be patronizing, not complimentary. In her empowering and, at times, confrontational memoir, Rousso describes overcoming the prejudice against disability -- not overcoming disability.
