This International Women's Day (8 March 2021), we celebrate the achievements of women around the world. The day is also a chance to raise awareness and come together for women's equality. Get involved at the IWD website and #IWD2021 hashtag on social media.
Did you know: women are unequally represented in the more than 5 million Australians affected by incontinence.
Incontinence has long-lasting physical and mental effects that touch so many areas of our lives. Research shows many women with severe urinary incontinence report issues in the workplace with concentration and self-confidence.
It affects women of all ages, backgrounds and life stages. So, what can we do? Talking about this important health issue helps reduce the stigma around it. So, start a conversation with the women in your life and together learn more about bladder, bowel and pelvic health and let them know there is help available.
