Women’s health heroes

Posted in Uncategorized by raisingwomensvoices on May 13, 2009

Our Bodies Ourselves recently inducted 20 Women’s Health Heroes, honoring the work of women’s health advocates worldwide.

The 2009 inaugural inductees represent seven countries and a wide range of health fields and disciplines, and after asking readers, “Who’s your women’s health hero?” OBOS received nearly 100 nominations from 12 countries.

Included are midwives and women advocating for safer, more comfortable births; founders of websites on chronic illness and teen sexuality; an activist against female genital mutilation; director of a LGBT health center; a public health nurse; a photographer; and many more.

See Our Bodies Our Blog for information about these 20 amazing women!
