WASHINGTON D.C., July 17, 2023 /Chicago Southsider/ — International Ms Illinois, Charlene Rhinehart, attended The White Dress Project Empowerment Experience, an annual event dedicated to raising awareness about fibroids and empowering women, during Fibroids Awareness Month. The White Dress Project has taken an active role in advocating for fibroid awareness by drafting legislation designating July as Fibroid Awareness Month.

Fibroids, noncancerous growths in the uterus that affect millions of women worldwide, can cause significant physical and emotional challenges. In support of women impacted by this condition, International Ms. Illinois traveled to Washington, D.C. from July 14 – July 16, 2023 to participate in The White Dress Project Empowerment Experience.

The White Dress Project, a national nonprofit headquartered in Atlanta, created a community where women can share their stories, find support, and access valuable resources. The Empowerment Experience featured educational sessions, expert panels, and interactive workshops that address various aspects of fibroids, including treatment options, advocacy, and emotional well-being. On Saturday night, the nonprofit hosted a “Night in White” gala to “empower women to recognize the power in their stories, take pride in their strength, and boldly declare that they are breaking the walls of silence and stigma.”

As International Ms Illinois, Charlene Rhinehart has consistently demonstrated her commitment to advocating for women’s health issues and promoting inclusivity. Her presence at The White Dress Project Empowerment Experience provided an important platform to discuss the impact of fibroids on women’s lives and the need for increased awareness, research, and support.

“I am deeply honored to participate in The White Dress Project Empowerment Experience,” said Charlene Rhinehart, International Ms Illinois. “Fibroids affect a significant number of women, yet the condition often goes undiagnosed or misunderstood. By coming together and sharing our stories, we can break the silence, educate others, and empower women to seek the support they deserve.”

During Fibroids Awareness Month, International Ms Illinois encourages individuals, healthcare providers, and policymakers to recognize the importance of raising awareness about fibroids and supporting those affected by the condition. By joining The White Dress Project Empowerment Experience, she hopes to amplify the voices of women living with fibroids and contribute to the ongoing conversation surrounding this prevalent health issue.
