It's Women's Equality Day! Let's Talk Equality - In Medical Research

August 26 is Women’s Equality Day, commemorating the date in 1920 when the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution was certified – granting women the right to vote.

Nearly 100 years later, women still have a long way to go before achieving equality in all areas – one of which being scientific research.

In 2015, U.S. representatives Jim Cooper (D-TN) and Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) re-introduced the bipartisan Research for All Act (H.R. 2101) to address gender disparities in medical research. Medical researchers have been using only male test subjects for years – but what about the other half of the population? Disparities in medical research lead to warped or incorrect diagnoses for women, impacting women’s health.

This crucial legislation will help ensure that medical research can benefit women and men equally. This Women’s Equality Day, share your support for the Research For All Act!  Learn more about the legislation and what you can do: http://cqrcengage.com/swhr and visit www.swhr.org to learn more about sex differences in diseases.
