International Women's Day: Highlight on Endometriosis
International Women's Day 2013
Today, as my friend Pamela reminded me, is International Women's Day. She called, as only one of your best friends can, at what I consider a rather unG~dly hour. Still, her timing was perfect.
I had just finished watching a video from Endometriosis.org, an international platform that has comprehensive and informative information about endometriosis, a disease that affects one in ten women. Their video is one of the best quick overviews that I've seen in quite a while, explaining what and how endometriosis can affect women and what one can do about it. So while I was enjoying this video, with the audio in a lovely english (British? Swedish?) accent, I heard about International Women's Day.
Yep, even with a foot of snow on a gorgeous March morning, the planets do align.
Raising Endometriosis Awareness for Women
What better way to acknowledge International Women's Day and March being Endometriosis Awareness Month than with an international organization?
