Women's health an important topic for the next decade

"Women became a topic in the nineties, and all we could hear about was pregnancy. Women's health was considered to be about our reproductive system, but we it's more. We are not an organ, we should be seen by a whole and we need to cover the biological needs and reactions by sex and gender," said Janine Clayton, M.D., deputy director from the Office of Research on Women's Health, during a panel about women's health research at Health Journalism 2010.

The panelists agreed there is a need to make distinctions between sex and gender and that both should be considered while covering and studying women's health issues and emphasized the importance of gender roles in treatment.
