dc.description.abstractThe social, religious, and political struggles of Joyce Leininger, a woman who was born without hands and with legs that extended just below her knees. Joyce led an extremely successful and productive life despite all of the barriers put in her way by society’s negative view of her physical difference. Joyce became a teacher, wife, and mother of three children. Joyce’s youngest child is the author of Joyce’s life history and the experiences of all Joyce's children, in relationship to how society treated them and their mother because of her physical condition.
