Sandra Jensen: Why she kicks ass
She devoted lots of her time working as an advocate for the rights of people with disabilities; she worked part time as well as being heavily involved in volunteering.
She was denied a heart-lung transplant by the Stanford University School of Medicine in California because she had Down syndrome. She then (along with supporters) began a very public battle, gaining nationwide attention arguing that Down syndrome should not be enough to automatically deprive a patient of a chance to survive, this resulted in her receiving the transplant (1996).
She became the first person with Down Syndrome to ever receive a heart-lung transplant.

Tokenistic, objectifying, voyeuristic inclusion is at least as disempowering as complete exclusion.
