KARMZAH - Comic Signing Event

Farida Bedwei – The author, disability rights advocate

“Ghana’s disability laws were passed in 2006 but have still not been implemented,” the simple verdict of one of its biggest disability rights advocate, herself disabled but stressing and stretching her capability than her inability at each turn.

Farida Bedwei, despite her cerebral palsy continues to break boundaries and push the frontiers of what persons like her could do but for the restrictions imposed by a system that has touted and vowed to protect them – persons with disabilities.

Her advocacy is well documented in Ghana’s media scape and across the world. 

Farida, a trained software engineer recently added a new feat to her advocacy. Not an entirely new feat but a new one all the same – I’d explain.

Comic mission to make disability aids look, feel “COOL”

Farida has taken to writing to buoy her disability rights advocacy. Till recently, she had authored a book “Definition of a Miracle” which she described as – “a fictional account of some experiences I had as a child, growing up with cerebral palsy in Ghana.”

But the latest is a comic book one with a super heroine, a super heroine who is disabled, her disability; cerebral palsy. With her limitations, the heroine hops, steps, jumps, flips and dives – all in a bid to chase off the bad guys and protect the feeble ones.

In Farida’s words: “Karmzah sounds like the name of a no-nonsense warrior who defeats bad guys. Sure, she has Cerebral Palsy and walks with crutches, but she still fights and does superhero stunts with those crutches.”
