Can-Do-Ability: Answers and Solutions from my personal experiences of living with a disability

I dont stand up I stand out - Push Girls

17 Sep 2012PUSH GIRLS is an uncensored glimpse at what it means to be sexy, ambitious and living with paralysis in Hollywood. These girls are just like any other girl. Push Girls traces the lives of four dynamic, outspoken and beautiful women who, by accident or illness, have been paralysed from the neck or the waist down.

'Push Girls' tackle life with spirit and confidence, and are inspiring and compelling. The show challenges perceptions about life in a wheelchair, giving the audience an honest, no nonsense look into their world. It's real, it's outspoken and it's from the heart. Push Girls want to educate the masses about their life and their world. They want to inspire others, and to remind people to live life to the fullest.

Taking a matter-of-fact attitude towards their disabilities, PUSH GIRLS offers a candid view of the women as they pursue their own claims to happiness as they enter different stages of their lives.

Angela is a down-to-earth, stunningly gorgeous model who has recently become separated from her husband.

Auti, a dancer, rapper, actress and all-around powerhouse, is crossing her fingers that, at age 42, she can try for a baby with her husband.

Reflective and pragmatic Mia is taking stock of her relationship with her able-bodied boyfriend; a onetime competitive swimmer, she is about to attempt to swim for the first time since high school. Appearing on the Ellen Show, she said “There is a cure for ignorance – its awareness.”

Flirty, wisecracking Tiphany is doing some deep soul-searching about her sexuality, settling down and finding her calling in life.

Ok, like this is a good start? The problem I see is that the women are all caucasion, all look like models and not like real women and they all look like they have money and their disabilities are simular, where's the diversity in that? I have found that whenever "disabled women" are portrayed, it is always with this stereotype. I have seen this growing up as a child in the 70's and I guess I shouldn't be all that surprised that it is still happening now? What ever sells right? and makes a profit! Most advertisements and the media in the general public is suppose to be trying to capture "cultural diversity" or diversity in general and move away from stereotypes! So much for that ay? Well these women don't represent me and millions of other women with disabilities unfortuneately!.
