SHE Media Welcomes Vagisil As Sponsor of Inagural #BlogHer18 Health to Encourage Women to Be Shameless About Their Vaginal Health
NEW YORK, NY – January 23, 2018 – SHE Media, formerly SheKnows Media, is a mission-driven digital media company created for and by women with approximately 60 million unique visitors per month (comScore) and 350 million-plus social media fans and followers, today announced today announced that Vagisil will be hosting a booth during #BlogHer18 Health, taking place January 30-31 in New York City.
Vagisil’s mission is to create a more open forum for women to speak out about their vaginal health – a topic that most women say they are uncomfortable discussing – in order to help inform, educate, and thereby reduce the shame that still exists around vaginal health issues. As leaders in feminine care, Vagisil’s “Women: Never Shut Up” booth aims to reduce the stigma surrounding vaginal health by empowering women with the information and effective solutions they need to be shameless about vaginal health.
“Vagisil is thrilled to partner with SHE Media at the first ever #BlogHer Health conference. This year, more than ever, it’s crucial that women have a platform to share their voice and to lift the shame that still exists around vaginal health. #BlogHer Health is the perfect platform to do so,” said Keech Combe-Shetty, CEO of Vagisil.
In support of Vagisil’s effort to encourage women to be shameless about their vaginal health, Dr. Shannon Chavez, a nationally recognized sex therapist will be at the booth answering questions with bloggers and conference attendees, one-on-one, about women’s sexual health and wellness. By not only starting but also normalizing the conversation about common vaginal health issues all women face, we make strides toward living in a world where women no longer suffer in silence.
“Celebrating the personal stories and medical discoveries that advance the conversation about women’s health is core to the mission of #BlogHer18 Health,” said Samantha Skey, CEO of SHE Media. “The conference is an ideal platform for brands like Vagisil, and we are thrilled to welcome them as a sponsor.”
During #BlogHer18 Health, bloggers have the opportunity to stop by the Vagisil booth and participate in a survey meant to gauge their understanding of vaginal health habits and sexual wellness practices; allowing participants that partake in the booth survey a chance to win tickets to the Vagisil’s VIP/VIQ event. Also, attendees who visit the booth will be able to sample a variety of Vagisil’s products.
More than 500 content creators, social media influencers, authors, entrepreneurs, brand executives and industry thought leaders are expected to attend #BlogHer18 Health. To date, mainstage speakers include: Arianna Huffington, media icon and creator of Thrive Global; Jillian Michaels, one of the world’s foremost wellness entrepreneurs; and Camila Alves McConaughey, co-founder of Yummy Spoonfuls; celebrity nutritionist and best-selling author Kelly Leveque; HBFit.com Founder Hannah Bronfman; and more.
