Access to Healthcare

hosted by Thestack

About this event

Medical misogyny is killing women. Chronic pains, inefficient birthing plans, and womb health is regularly ignored, misdiagnosed or disregarded; the implications upon women's lives are devastating. It is time to educate the healthcare system and to arm women with new language that does not allow their suffering to go unnoticed.


Speakers

Michelle Kennedy launched Peanut in 2017 to solve a need she'd experienced as a new mom: isolation. When Michelle had her first child, she struggled to meet like-minded women and found herself trawling out-dated blogs for advice in the early hours. For Michelle, Peanut is about recognizing a pain point millions of women encounter and providing access to community when they need it most. Her mission is to reduce feelings of isolation and empower women to connect, all over the world.
