The Gimpy Girls. They are "Clearly, Frankly, Unabashedly Gimpy" and in their words
“Gimp” in two definitions in Webster’s Dictionary, means “vigor” or
“fighting spirit” and a “person who walks with a halting, lame walk.”
And sooner or later every last damned one of us finds ourselves
Gimpy and in need of all the vigor and fighting spirit we can muster.
Presently, 51 million people – that’s 18 percent of all Americans –
have a disability, says the U.S. Census Bureau. And the nation’s 78
million baby boomers are just entering their 60s – making for more
Gimpy people than ever before.
The Gimpy Girls’ passion is to make life easier for Gimpy people
everywhere – regardless of their personal architecture – and have some
tongue-in-cheek fun doing it.
Check out their growing list of "Gimpliments". Ya gotta love these girls – and their attitudes!
Monica Moshenko, host of Disability News & Views Radio Show has interviewed [with]tv Founder and CEO, Howard Renensland. On her website she introduced Howard by writing this:
Howard Renensland, Father, Advocate, Actor and CEO & Founder, [with]tv
is a start-up corporation devoted to providing television and Internet
programming of, by, and for people with disabilities. Driven by his own
experiences the past 22 years advocating for his own daughter Victoria,
Howard found the single most debilitating factor limiting people with
disabilities is not their disability, but their image in mainstream
media. There is no mainstream television channel in the world
addressing the needs of and targeting people with disabilities as
viewers, consumers and participants. Howard resolved to change that by
creating , an inclusive media outlet that defines all people by their
talents and the quality of their stories, rather than by disability; a
place where his daughter Victoria and everyone else can work in a
universally designed workplace with a welcoming, inclusive workforce –
with-tv is born. Listen to this compelling interview with Mr.
Renensland to learn more about with-tv and how you can get involved
