IRISH ACTIVIST Sinéad Burke will appear on the September issue of international fashion and lifestyle magazine British Vogue.

The Dublin woman, a disability rights activist, says she is “proud, incredibly honoured and humbled” to appear alongside fourteen other influential women on the cover of the magazine, which is guest-edited by British Royal Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex.

The issue is titled ‘Forces For Change’ and features feminist actress Jameela Jamil, LGBTQ+ advocate Laverne Cox, Extinction Rebellion founder Greta Thunberg, as well as other influential female figures. One space depicts a mirror, encouraging the reader to become an outspoken force for good.

Ms Burke is most-known in Ireland and abroad for her TED Talk “Why Design should include everyone” in which she speaks honestly about the struggles people with disabilities face in a world where all infrastructure was built only with the able-bodied in mind.

In the talk, she says “I often forget that I’m a little person. It’s the physical environment and society that remind me”.
