Last year was huge year for me and my health. Within the space of a few months, I was diagnosed with Polycystic ovaries syndrome along with Endometriosis.

Strength in Pain: What I’ve Learned From My Father’s Suicideby Dan Bennett
Death is a weird thing to experience. Before it happened, I never really understood its full impact. I’d lost a great aunt, a few cats and a dog, but not a dad. No one tells you about how weird it is that one day they’re there; alive, beating, warm, and the next… gone. Obviously their […]

Religious Doctrines Are Jeopardising Women’s Healthby Dan Bennett
Often, in important historical and political movements, the rights and needs of women have been sacrificed and relegated to the back of society’s consciousness. Writer Gwendolyn Mikell cites the decolonisation of African countries as an example of this, stating that ‘after independence, male suppression of African women’s political autonomy increased’. This encroachment into the civil rights […]

Always Get Your Smearsby Dan Bennett
Last year, I wrote an article for LAPP describing my fairly traumatic experience with an IUD and how dealing with that led me to (thankfully) discover that I’d contracted a high-risk strain of HPV. Although I was apprehensive about sharing my story, I received a lot of great feedback and support from others dealing with […]
The Censorship Of U.S. Sex Workersby Dan Bennett
In 2017, The Stop Enabling Sex Trafficking Act was introduced by Republican senator Rob Portman. More commonly known as SESTA, the law would assist attorneys looking to sue websites that provide a platform for sex trafficking; a form of modern-day slavery in which individuals perform commercial sex through means of force, fraud, or coercion.

Show Me Something Real: An Ode to the Anti-Acne Beauty Industryby Dan Bennett
From the time that most of us were able to comprehend the concept of an advertisement, it seems like young women (and men) have been consistently targeted into a marketing scheme that is dedicated to making our faces and bodies nothing but flawless. Everywhere from the aisle at a drugstore with severely photo shopped faces […]

Sacred Lives: Pope Francis Has His Say On Abortionby Dan Bennett
One of the Catholic church’s most famous tropes is the interference of women’s bodies and the sheer refusal to let women have agency over themselves. Given that the Bible’s teachings are mostly about peace, unconditional love, and turning the other cheek, one could be forgiven for thinking that maybe the church would have a fairly […]

We All Want Someone Who Listens, But Do We Care if they Can Hear?by Dan Bennett
LAPP is dedicated to promoting unity, with the belief that everyone makes up a piece of the pie. Sadly, this feeling of unity is not a reality for many individuals with hearing impairments and it is a direct result of the way society treats them. Individuals with hearing loss are forgotten, not discussed and often […]
