The Outrageous Status Quo
The current state of women's health is unacceptable
It is time to prioritize and elevate women's health. For too long, a harmful cycle has prevented the progress women deserve. We unite to create solutions and build a brighter future.
Periods are normal—and deserve to be stigma-free
Period stigma is pervasive and has real consequences. We need to reduce the shame and taboo surrounding periods in order to improve access to menstrual products and to increase investment in women’s health.
More investment is needed in women’s health
Women are 50% of the population yet there is inadequate investment in their health. We should know more about menstruation and common conditions like uterine fibroids. More research has the potential to unlock new insights that could improve education and lead to new, innovative solutions for women.
Lack of knowledge
Period education needs to be improved
Many women have periods yet our knowledge of menstruation remains incomplete, including how much bleeding and pain is normal. Improved period education is needed to demystify menstruation and increase body literacy and empowerment.
Lack of solutions for women
More innovation is critical to women’s health
In addition to new technologies and medicines, we need innovative approaches to collective action, destigmatization, investment, and education. Now is the time to accelerate innovation for lasting change.
Where we come in
We unite to break the cycle and transform women’s health
The problems facing women’s health are entrenched and exist in all sectors. That’s why we need to come together, as individuals and organizations, to change the status quo.
We are a cross-sector coalition working to elevate the conversation around women’s health and to drive meaningful change
