Christa Couture, who lost her leg to bone cancer as a teen, noticed that women with disabilities aren’t featured in most parenting coverage. So she did something about it.
These words from @mamacaxx mean a great deal to me. The response to these photos has been incredible and unexpected — and still happening! This is exactly why I wanted to share them — representation is powerful. … #Repost @mamacaxx ・・・ SO IMPORTANT. Thank you and congratulations to @christacouture ———————————————— I really loved this article featuring Christa. When I talk about representation THIS is what I mean. Not the vain need to see people like you in Magazine but knowing there are people like you doing things or living a life that you are constantly (subliminally or not ) told you can’t. I’m glad there are people out there showing that these things are reachable and just as they are the norm for a handful they should be for all. Imagine more portrayals of woman bosses, trans women, girls in STEM, Black in tech, middle eastern playing a role that’s not a terrorist, big women as the love Interest in your favorite sitcom but also in those steamy sex scenes.(& the list goes on) These images and stories are important they are shaping tomorrow’s society. #mamacax #bionicmommy 📷: @jensquiresphotographer _______________________________________
