Ellen Mansfield holding up a Life Magazine with a childhood photograph of herself in speech therapy with a giant ear, which she has written over. Many Deaf children are used as “poster children” to propagate the wonders of oralism.  this image was used for the #liesagbelltoldmyparents campaign.  The image was made into a banner and has been used in peaceful protests.  Truths keep being told.

Ellen Mansfield is a survivor of reign of oralism – AG Bell Assoc. and co. proselytizing of an unholy regime of oral / aural only upbringing and anti-ASLism.  Her art also is a visual testimony of other victims and survivors of the 1st and 2nd wave of oralism via AG Bell and Co.
