The Untold Story of Women in Medicine- International Women's Day.

Happy International Women's Day!

Here at Balanced for Life, as we celebrate the remarkable achievements of women worldwide, I want to take a moment to reflect on a pivotal moment in history that often goes unnoticed. We all know about the suffragette movement and the granting of women's voting rights in 1902, and many of us are aware of the milestone in 1965 when women were finally allowed into bars in Australia. But did you know what significant event occurred in 1985?

In 1985, a groundbreaking report by the Public Health Service Task Force on Women's Health Issues recommended long-term research into how behaviour, biology, and social factors affect women's health. This report laid the foundation for a monumental shift in medical research – the inclusion of women in clinical trials.

Just 39 years ago, women were systematically excluded from the early stages of drug trials, leading to a lack of understanding of how drugs affect women differently than men. It's a sobering reminder of the progress we've made and the challenges we still face in achieving gender equality in healthcare.

To commemorate this historic milestone and celebrate the incredible resilience and strength of women everywhere, we've prepared a special video that sheds light on the journey of women in medicine and how at Balanced for Life we acknowledge women in the various stages of their life. I invite you to watch the video to find out more.

Thank you for being a part of our community and for your continued support of women's health. Together, we can create a brighter, more equitable future for all.
