Women's Health Week - Let's talk about it.
The Women’s Health Week logo is meant to provoke bold conversations about sexual, reproductive and menstrual health for life. The image of a uterus and the gradient color change imply a uniqueness for each woman’s hormonal cycle. The circle demonstrates a cycle, unity and unwavering commitment to change for women’s health.
