HEALTH SEXISM

IT’S WORSE THAN WE THOUGHT

HEALTH NEWS

Last spring, in the light of research proving women’s health was routinely being dismissed, we launched our campaign lobbying the government to take women’s health seriously. Since then, plenty of others have echoed our call, with a rush of personal stories about health sexism flooding the internet. But – it’s not enough. A major new report has revealed women spend more years of their life (19.1) in poor health compared to men (16.1). And that’s not all. We’re twice as likely to experience anxiety, we have more back pain, and endometriosis affects one in 10. These conditions are still not properly understood and many women who have them continue to be unreasonably dismissed. We’re still angry, and want this to change. If you do, too, go to healthy-magazine.co.uk, download our letter and email Paula Sherriff MP. Show your support, or share your stories, using #feelourpain.
