Who’s Your Women’s Health Hero? Tell Us by Midnight on Friday

By Christine |


More than 60 heroes have been nominated so far in the first ever Our Bodies Ourselves Women’s Health Heroes Awards. Included among them is an environmental peace activist; a professor of human sexuality; a state senate president; a public health nurse; an activist against genital mutilation; doulas, midwives and women who have founded organizations advocating for safer, more comfortable births; founders of websites on chronic illness, menopause and teen sexuality … the list goes on.

It’s inspiring and even a bit overwhelming to see dozens of heroes described  in such heartfelt ways. The best part is getting introduced (or reacquainted) with so many people who have made a difference. See for yourself.

If you’ve been thinking about nominating someone — or nominating yourself — don’t delay. The deadline is this Friday, May 1. We’ll take new submissions up until midnight. Here’s what you need to know about submitting a nomination.

And please keep reading and voting for your favorite health heroes. The voting deadline is May 8.
