Things You Can Do During National Women’s Health Week
The following suggestions are things you can do during National Women’s Health Week to help raise awareness. You don’t need to spend a lot of time or money focusing on the activities, either. Some are meant to be done quickly and with minimal effort from you.
- Donating to a non-profit women’s health organization. Every dollar counts. During times of adversity, it’s important to give what you can as often as you can.
- Volunteering to help women access the resources they need to remain healthy. Education is power. You can empower women to take charge of their own health by making it easy for them to see which resources exist for them to take advantage of.
- Provide care packs filled with feminine hygiene products to the homeless. They can take better care of themselves each month. Many women do not have access to sanitary products because they don’t have a place to call home.
- Speak on behalf of the underrepresented population in your community. You can be a voice for the voiceless. Stand up for their rights the way you stand up for your own.
- Share content that promotes exams and other preventative health measures. Social media is a powerful thing. Use it as a tool for sharing information.
