Kath Mazzella wants to help you be a change maker in your corner of the globe.
With over 10 awards, including the prestigious 2018 WA Senior Australian of the Year, WA Senior of the Year Award, Cancer Australia Gynaecological Cancers Award and an Order of Australia Medal, Kath has been campaigning for over two decades to create greater awareness of women's Gynaecological and Sexual Health and associated Mental Health challenges.
"Unless we share stories and speak more openly, women will continue to suffer in silence. We must remove this barrier, break the taboos and stigmas, so that women can receive the support and early intervention that will improve their quality of life and in some cases, even save their life!" says Mazzella.
Kath is motivated by her personal story of surviving a gynaecological cancer as well as the thousands of stories of women's suffering around the globe that have been shared with her over her many years of advocacy and awareness campaigning work.
Join Kath's International Gynaecological Awareness Day celebrations on 10 Sept by hosting an event in your corner of the globe!

To celebrate the International Gynaecological Awareness Day 2020 I was more than elated to witness the Morley MLA Amber-Jade Sanderson raised a grievance on Gynaecological Health in Parliament House with a response from the WA Minister for Health Roger Cook.

Kath is a Woman on a Mission!
I am driven by the desire to speak up for the millions of voiceless women, the ones who suffer in silence with Endometriosis, Polycystic Ovaries, Fibroids, GYN Cancers, Infertility, Prolapse Uterus, and so many more Gynaecological and Sexual Health conditions.
I am searching for CHANGE CHAMPIONS who you will join me in my campaign, by booking me to speak at community and corporate events, choosing to celebrate the International Gynaecological Awareness Day (IGAD) on 10 Sept or by attending one of my workshops.
