3. Who is the “Girl in the Pink Wheelchair”? The name “The Girl in the Pink Wheelchair” came to me after watching one of my favorite movies, “Confessions of a Shopaholic” (such a guilty pleasure!). The main character in that novel named her writing alter-ego “The Girl in the Green Scarf”. I at the time was getting inspired to create this website and then “The Girl in the Pink Wheelchair” came to me. It symbolized strength, femininity and fierceness…. the things that society attempts to rip from me as a disabled woman. “TGIPW” represents each and everyone of you.
4. What is “Pink Girls”? You! Pink Girls is the branch of “TGIPW”. It is each and everyone of you. It represents your beauty, your strength, and positivity. By being a proud “Pink Girl” you are embracing the wonderful woman within! All merchandise is marked as “Pink Girls”. Each and everyone is a beautiful “Pink Girl”!
