At this time of year and with International Women’s Day this week, we at Darling Health, would like to acknowledge our wonderful women patients and women everywhere. The year has begun with many stories of women affected by violence and currently in Australia each week one woman is murdered by her partner or ex- partner.
I would like to remind all our patients that Darling Health is a safe place for you. And your practitioners are constantly moved by the way you wade through your health and life challenges with such bravery, resilience and often damn good humour!! The IWD 2020 campaign theme this year is ‘Each for Equal’ and is drawn from the notion of ‘Collective Individualism’.
The IWD expresses so eloquently how “we are all parts of a whole. Our individual actions, conversations, behaviours and mindsets can have an impact on our larger society. Collectively, we can make change happen. Collectively, we can each help to create a gender equal world”.
So remember to connect to the women in your life this week, your daughters, mothers, sisters – biological or otherwise – and I hope you all have a meaningful International Women’s Day.
Love, Amanda Haberecht xx
