WA Senior Australian of the Year (2018) Kath Mazzella had her life turned upside down after a radical gynaecological cancer diagnosis and surgery. She went on to discover a world of women with gynaecological conditions who felt just as isolated and disempowered as she had. Kath also recognised the ripple effect this has on the men and families of women who suffer. An agent for change, Kath will talk about breaking down the social stigmas surrounding these issues, the need for community education and her International Gynaecological Awareness Day initiative.
