Wendy Crawford, a professional model who sustained a spinal cord injury in 1984, resulting in quadriplegia, spent years of frustration not being able to find answers to what seemed to be simple questions regarding everyday women’s issues for individuals in wheelchairs. She decided to take action by creating a website to address these topics. In 2002, her vision became a reality - mobileWOMEN.org was launched and has had loyal readers and interactive participants ever since.
mobileWOMEN.org is a unique online magazine where women in wheelchairs can find answers to questions about health, fashion, and other topics that are not typically addressed in women’s mainstream media. The mission of mobileWOMEN.org is to bring together current and accurate information on issues of interests to the disability community and to enable people to share and learn from one another.
Wendy has stated many times, “Our most valuable resource is each either.” So it is not surprising that the majority of writers for the site have been women with disabilities - who better to share on these important topics? One of these writers is Kelly Rouba, former Ms. Wheelchair New Jersey, author, and tireless advocate for people with disabilities. Kelly, who has juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, took a deep interest in the site and teamed up with Wendy to become the editor of mobileWOMEN.org.
With feedback from readers all over the world, this dynamic duo put their heads together and is now ready to re-launch a new and improved mobileWOMEN.org. The team confirms that site contains all the important information that it did before, but they are excited to introduce two new innovative features! The first feature allows women to upload their own personal video clips as a way to educate and inspire others through their stories. The second is dedicated to fashion and allows women to swap adapted clothing ideas on the latest looks in fashion, as well as upload photos and share opinions.
mobileWOMEN.org believes that women with disabilities steer their own lives. Empowered by knowledge, they are having children, pursuing careers, competing in professional sports arenas, becoming community leaders, and living life to the fullest! This overlooked segment of the population refuses to be overlooked anymore and mobileWOMEN.org is excited to be in the forefront where knowledge is expanded and success celebrated, thereby broadening the horizons for women in wheelchairs all over the world!
