My second post! Like most, I've been appalled by the lack of funding that is invested into research into endometriosis. As a woman in the documentary 'Endo What' says, "Endometriosis puts a burden of an estimated $190 billion annually. So this isn't just a disease of women with painful periods, this is a societal disease". Or, one women out of ten, as they say.
Although marathons and cake-selling events have their purpose, I have a hunch that women that need to organise more effectively for politicians to hear them. Have there been demonstrations in front of Westminster? Mass-rallies against endo?
How best do you think we grab society's attention to give endometriosis the funds it deserves? I'm a journalist. Would have any compelling stories to tell me so as to raise awareness?
All the best,
p.s: the trailer for the documentary "Endo what?"
