About this year's theme- Women and Health: Collective Growth and Healing
The pandemic has highlighted the significance behind collective care and responsibility. It has allowed for the exploration of how we connect and relate to one another.
Self-care is not enough in a capitalist society. Well-being is a joint responsibility. Health is not just about physical and mental wellness. It is also about the spiritual and emotional elements. Women have always been at the forefront in caring for our loved ones; our families, neighbours, and our communities. Women have led the way in shifting towards holistic definitions of health and wellness. How do we collectively facilitate growth and healing?
