Women’s Well-Being

Our gender expression can be an important and valued part of our identity. But social pressure and cultural messaging focused on our gender—and how well we can live up to or “perform” to those expectations—can have a great impact on our feelings of self-worth and can make us struggle with self-acceptance. However, we can also gain great personal satisfaction in living up to those expectations. Our relationship to our gender can touch every aspect of our well-being, and our unique and shared gender experiences create a tapestry of community that we can rely on to help us grow more fully into ourselves. Every one of us has the right to live a vibrant life in our full identity, and our struggle for well-being can find support from those who understand and validate the complexities, nuance, pain, and joy of our community’s lived experiences.
