The Girl in The Pink Wheelchair platform exists to amplify disabled women’s voices, host resources and to be a leader of information for the disability community.
We were founded by a disabled woman who lives on the Eastern Shore of MD. Accessibility and fighting for equality is my passion!

[Image Description: the image above is built into our site and was not able for alternative captions unlike the rest of our images so the ID is here. The logo was designed by Jessica Oddi. You can find her work here. She is also a leader in accessibility— and is a disabled woman.
Description of image: The woman is in her wheelchair, her bra and thigh highs are peeking out. She’s sitting in her pink wheelchair. She’s wearing denim shorts and a tank top. Her legs are crossed; she’s wearing lipstick, as well. Jessica’s signature is on the side. The text reads, “The Girl in the Pink Wheelchair.”]
Creating and Cultivating Spaces for the Voices of Disabled Women!
As a teenager, I had a dream of starting a digital platform where I could elevate and amplify voices. I couldn’t find resources. I couldn’t find platforms where I could find help. I couldn’t find accessible information. I created TGITPW to be a digital platform where women’s voices are not only heard, but honored and amplified.
Your voice matters, your concern matters, and your work is created into a resource to help womyn of all ages.
Every piece, whether written by me or our writers, is here to cultivate a platform of honesty, rawness and resourcefulness for our community.
July is Disability Pride Month!
I’m committed to amplifying the voices of our community every day as well as sharing stories of my own including real life stories such as the accessibility in my own local community! Do you pledge to help me? Let’s make Disability Pride 2020 be memorable even during COVID-19! Email email@example.com

Are you a person with a disability that can’t wear a shield or a mask due to respiratory weakness or other disability related issues; i.e. visual acuity or being HoH? Do you have an idea for a disability related device that could improve your life or the life of other disabled people? Keep reading below for more information on this project!
Gabrielle of Tom Global‘s U-Penn team is working on making accessible shields, masks and other accessible designs. If you have an idea (even if it’s not related to PPE), she wants to hear about it! Please contact email@example.com
