EMPLOYMENT


Deborah Orr: “Having a hard time in the office? … Recently Gill Switalski appeared to have won a case against F&C Asset Management, in which she accused a new line manager of becoming “fixated” with her flexible hours – even though she was hitting her targets – and mounting a campaign of “bullying, harassment, intimidation, sexual discrimination and victimisation against her”. Switalski’s flexible hours were in place so that she could look after her sons – one with cerebral palsy and one with Asperger’s. She still faces further litigation, with the prosecution alleging that she “faked a breakdown”. Individual cases tend to drag on, as allegations are always ruthlessly contested.”:

ART


ARTIST – Steve Frisby


Steve Frisby has been inspired to paint and study geometric and fractal designs for 14 years. He is 34.

Diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome in January 2005, Steven has pondered about boldness and the nature of beauty since childhood, and feels that geometry has led him to see his autistic abilities as keys to understanding.”:

Films of my life: Miranda July on Billy the Kid”:

Billy the Kid
Jennifer Venditti (2007)


I’m such a fan of this movie. A film-maker called Jennifer Venditti followed a 15-year-old kid with Asperger’s around for three days. He’s just amazing and fascinating, because he seems to be the thing that each of us have inside us and that we make sure to keep inside so we won’t get destroyed. Watching him walk around so undefended is totally terrifying and exhilarating. It really affected me.
