Since the early 1900’s, women across the globe have come together on one day a year to celebrate sisterhood and rally behind driving progress for women’s rights and wellbeing. This day, globally recognized as International Women’s Day, is close to Bright Pink’s heart for many reasons. In 2018, we are focused on one reason in particular: The power and spirit of community.
At Bright Pink, we know and believe in the power of the collective effort–we see it in our office, in our daily work, and in the communities we work with. We’re committed to #PressforProgress in women’s health all month long, in honor of both International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month. How? By encouraging women across the nation to #SelfCareandShare and join a growing community of female health heroes who are prioritizing breast and ovarian health. This is what progress looks like, in action:
- See health care as a form of self-care by assessing your risk for breast and ovarian cancer using our tool Assess Your Risk™
- Share Assess Your Risk™ with 8 women you love to create a sentiment of sisterhood and extend the knowledge that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
Not only is it important to continue to #PressforProgress in women’s health, but it’s also important to celebrate the work we have accomplished together thus far. In 2018 alone, 57,000+ women have assessed their risk for breast and ovarian cancer–contributing to a total of over 900,000+ women since Bright Pink’s inception. That is definitely something worth celebrating!
It’s an exciting time to be a woman. And together, we are stronger. Together, we can make an impact. Together, we can become proactive health advocates and encourage others to do the same.
