Held annually on the 8 March, International Women's Day is a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender parity.
Observed since the early 1900s, it is an opportunity to unite, celebrate, reflect, advocate and take action - whatever that looks like globally at a local level.
In celebration of International Women’s Day, Bowel Cancer Australia is raising awareness of bowel cancer in women and sharing empowering stories from Aussie women who are kicking bowel cancer’s ass.
It is a common misconception that bowel cancer is an old man’s disease. Yet the reality is, bowel cancer affects women of all ages, and almost half of all people diagnosed with bowel cancer in Australia each year are women.
Are you a kick ass woman living with or beyond bowel cancer, or do you have a female family member or friend that is?
Help us challenge the misconceptions this International Women’s Day and kick bowel cancer’s ass.
We’re seeking female volunteers of all ages to share their experiences to help raise awareness of bowel cancer in women, show support for all the kick ass Aussie women currently living with or beyond bowel cancer, and help save lives.
Tell your story in celebration of International Women’s Day, raise awareness of bowel cancer in women and help us kick bowel cancer’s butt.
To find out how you can share your kick ass story contact us today.
Bowel Cancer Australia's goal is to have a lasting impact on our health future - where no one dies of bowel cancer and all those diagnosed receive the support they need.
