There's a new reality show coming out called Push Girls, about women in wheelchairs.
It focuses on four female friends, all wheelchair bound, navigating their everyday lives.
The president of the United Spinal Association said:
"As a community, we say we want to be treated like everyone else. Well, everyone else has a reality show. These aren't the 'Mob Wives.' … My belief is that 'Push Girls' will help dispel preconceived notions by showing people living their lives and enjoying the same things as everyone else, just a little bit differently."
The series is going to show everything from putting on make-up, driving and going to work, all the way to swimming, skiing, dating and starting families.
It serves to humanize disabled people for those who might be unfamiliar with how normal of a life they can lead.
We think this is a great idea for a show!
