“Women belong in all places where decisions are being made.”
-Ruth Bader Ginsburg
In June 2021, and again in June 2022, I was chosen by the Association of Migraine Disorders to serve as an influencer in their international social media campaign “Shades for Migraine.”
There are more than one billion people who suffer from migraine worldwide. That figure includes 39 million Americans, with two-thirds of those being women. One of the oldest ailments known to humankind, migraine has been often called a women’s issue. Indeed, the cliche, “Not tonight, dear, I have a headache,” pokes fun at the plight of the millions of women who suffer in silence, who have no voice.
The purpose of my migraine advocacy work is simple, to give women and all migraine sufferers a voice.
