While both women and men suffer invisible pain, the former are more likely to suffer mental health and chronic diseases. Women are more vulnerable to silent pain at work, which could contribute to stereotypes of their job performance, leading to a widening wage gap and limiting them to leadership roles.
Moreover, women experience different types of visible and invisible pains, for example, during menstruation and menopause when changes in hormone levels occur. These sufferings have a huge impact on women physically and mentally and should be addressed in an open dialogue.
What is invisible pain, and why women are vulnerable? Do you feel comfortable talking to others about it? What can employers do to help alleviate invisible pains?
Please join this wellness talk about women's full-body well-being and why it is important to address these silent issues visibly to create a sustainable workplace for women.
