Lady Health With Lenny
Ladies and gents, lend me your ears. I want to point you all in the direction of Lenny. "What in the world is a Lenny??" I hear you ask? Well, Lenny Letter is weekly newsletter founded by Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner focusing on politics, style, culture, work and health with woman as the focus. A wonderful, growing community of people talking about some really important topics. It's pretty cool.
One topic explored and discussed a few months ago was Endometriosis. A massive problem in woman's health because approximately 176 million women worldwide are diagnosed with this condition yet for most woman, it takes years to reach this diagnoses and it is believed many, many more woman remain undiagnosed. Unfortunately, woman's reproductive health is also still an area that is not very openly discussed. Imagine having a chronic illness directly related to a taboo topic? That is why more open and honest communication, not only between woman, but also men and woman is needed. The brave woman that have this condition need all the understanding, love and support they can get.
Thankfully we have communities popping up around the web like lovely Lenny to shine a light on areas that needs some extra attention. You may have already guessed, but I want to shout it from the roof tops.... I LOVE LENNY!
