Sex Cells: The Fight to Overcome Bias and Discrimination in Women’s Healthcare

Recognizing the woman who’s been the driving force for change in women’s health


Help us celebrate Phyllis Greenberger's accomplishments and lifetime commitment to women's health!

Listen to what inspired Phyllis to publish her new book with Mayo Clinic Press, " Sex Cells," which tells the story of how she and her allies in the U.S. government, NGOs, academia, medical research and public health advocacy got the scientific and medical world to recognize that women are unique.

Inside a museum dedicated to renewing and inspiring a love of words and language, hear from Phyllis about her 25-year fight to have female cells, lab animals and humans brought into medical research, so women can receive treatment that is appropriate and effective for a wide range of conditions.

The journey toward equal treatment and the understanding of sex and gender differences in prevention, diagnosis and treatment is still unfolding.

Join us on Sunday, April 14, in Washington, D.C., to hear about that journey — why it was, and still is, so important to do research specific to women/females.

About HealthyWomen

HealthyWomen is dedicated to educating midlife women so they can make informed health decisions, advocate for themselves, and prioritize their health and wellness.

For more than 30 years, women have turned to HealthyWomen for answers to their most important healthcare questions. In fact, our website was the first to comprehensively address women’s health and wellness issues and continues to educate consumers and healthcare providers about advances in women’s health, from the latest information on diseases and conditions to various milestones pertaining to access to care.

We ensure that women have accurate, balanced, evidence-based health information on innovations in research, science and technology, as well as changes in policy that affect their access to treatment and care so they are prepared to self-advocate for better health outcomes.
