🌟 Below the Belt: A Film to Change Endometriosis 🌟

In partnership with PELI HEALTH - Your Pelvic Power Partner


Endometriosis affects approximately 1 in 10 women globally, causing debilitating pain. Yet, it remains widely unrecognized culturally and medically.


Enter Shannon Cohn, creator, and director of "Below the Belt," a groundbreaking documentary aiming to change the narrative. Through the compelling stories of four patients in pursuit of answers to mysterious symptoms, this film sheds light on systemic problems within our healthcare systems.


Endometriosis affects around 200 million people globally, with an average diagnosis delay of 10 years. Women of color face even greater challenges in diagnosis and treatment. "Below the Belt" sparks urgent conversations about these injustices and calls for systemic change.


This documentary is for EVERYONE. Join us in this event, in partnership with Peli Health, dedicated to improving pelvic wellness for over 40 million women and AFAB individuals facing pelvic floor dysfunction. Discover how millions with endometriosis are silenced, exposing societal taboos, gender bias, misinformed doctors, and profit-driven healthcare.
