Million Women March – 2nd Year


When we experience something for the first time and receive so much value from it, we will welcome again that experience in our lives, year after year. We will fill our soul with hope and anticipation and our time would receive precise pinpoints. March 13, 2014 was the first Million Women March for Endometriosis, an action meant to raise awareness towards a condition that has managed to slipped unnoticed for too long. This year, the event will be held on 28th March, so save the date in your calendar and prepare for the march.

There is no doubt that awareness movements are gaining momentum with each year that passes, as people around the world can access information more easy. Media and especially the online social media play a vital role in connecting remote events around the globe in one sole voice, louder and easier understood. As our global village is becoming smaller and smaller, isolated problems, affecting just a small percent of the population become problems of the whole community. The power of a united voice can force the hands of decision makers to speed up the allocation of resources.

At the moment, despite the situation has improved from recent years, endometriosis still receives insufficient coverage and its impact over population’s health suffers from the sin of underestimation. We are yet not capable of considering endometriosis a disease worth a glorious fight, and put it next to the “celebrities” of the medical world like cancer or diabetes. But we should better ask those who fought and won the battle against endometriosis and it’s imposed limitation over the capacity to enjoy life. Personnel examples of success are literally filling the void left by our ignorance, motivating young women to embrace early detection methods and leave behind any fear.  

Endometriosis is currently affecting 200 million women and girls, not to count cases yet to be confirmed. Each year other millions join this big family. Aren’t we responsible for putting a stop to the alarming trend? No, we should not keep endometriosis for ourselves, and suffer in loneliness. Diseases had travel a long way from being a motif of discrimination and other forms of social exclusion. You are not less worthy than others and you should never be afraid to keep the head up and state your problem to the world.

Don’t forget that you should start wearing the yellow ribbon, the symbol for the fight against endometriosis, from the first day of March. The whole month is dedicated to actions around the globe meant to raise extra awareness and continue the legacy of the past year’s event.
Social media is our current weapon of choice for spreading ideas and reaching deep inside the mind of others. If you feel brave, you could create a short video, a presentation or just write a few sentences. It doesn’t cost you anything and it can only help your popularity level. Your intervention can quickly catch flame inside your circle of friends and there is no better way to support a cause that largely depends on the number of people that adhere to it.

It helps a lot to know that endometriosis is a condition that affects women from all layers of society. Even celebrities become victims of something not completely understood and explained by modern medical science. We all know Whoopi Goldberg and it surely made us laught at least once. She found out she had endometriosis in the 70's and undergo a successful medical treatment. From then, she is a passionate advocate of charitable causes, including that of raising awareness for endometriosis. Hillary Clinton is probably the most powerful feminine figure from the US political stage and she has manage to get out from the shadow cast by her husband great success to the public. Her career as First Lady was marked by intensive involvement in reforms regarding health issues. Endometriosis was part of her life experience, as she had trouble conceiving her only child, Chelsea, born in 1980. The list can go on with many other important public figures being involved in fights with the silent problem of endometriosis. Your story could be also a success story and you don’t have to be a celebrity to share it.
