Push Girls


Reality TV,
“Push Girls,”
Women living with paralysis.

A reality show,
Shattering stereotypes,
Changing perceptions.

The ladies of “Push Girls,”
Very open,
Very willing to share.

Four best friends,
Living life,
Doing what girlfriends do

Only living with paralysis.

The show is on the Sundance Channel. In some ways, the lives of the “push girls” are different from the lives of other young women their age, but in so many ways, they are just like other young women their age.
