NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SheKnows Media, a leading women’s media company that averages 60 million unique visitors per month (comScore) and reaches more than 300 million social media fans, announced today that it is collaborating with Vagisil, a maker of innovative products designed to improve the vaginal health of women, on a multifaceted experiential campaign to generate authentic conversation about women’s health – from postpartum to perimenopause.
At #BlogHer17, a leading conference for women content creators and entrepreneurs produced by SheKnows Media, Vagisil CEO Keech Combe Shetty will open the June 24th lunchtime keynote with a speech on empowering women and girls through information and openness about their bodies and wellbeing.
In addition to sponsoring #BlogHer17, Vagisil is collaborating with HelloFlo, SheKnows Media’s Webby Award-winning flagship women’s health platform, to produce two Wine + Gyn events. The Wine + Gyn event series provides a forum to share stories and have no-holds-barred conversation about issues impacting women’s health, bodies and wellbeing throughout all life stages.
On May 9, 2017, Vagisil sponsored a Wine + Gyn event at La Sirena in New York focused on postpartum and featuring Combe Shetty on a panel of experts. As part of the event, SheKnows Media conducted proprietary research on the topic, surveying nearly 800 women about their lives after giving birth. Topline results from the new “Life After Baby” survey found that:
- 65% of new moms had sex within eight weeks of giving birth; 69% used lubrication.
- 53% did not feel well prepared for life after baby
- 81% are surprised at how confident they became after having a child
Vagisil will also sponsor a Wine + Gyn event in Fall 2017 that will focus on the physical and mental issues associated with perimenopause, the time during which women make the natural transition to menopause. Details about the event, including featured speakers and accompanying research, will be revealed at a future date. In addition, SheKnows Media will produce two custom branded videos to accompany both Vagisil-sponsored Wine + Gyn events, which will be shared on its SheKnows.com site and social channels.
"Vagisil is partnering with SheKnows Media because they share our mission to destigmatize vaginal health and improve women's everyday lives,” said Combe Shetty. “SheKnows Media gives women and brands a platform to talk about tough and taboo topics, pioneering straight-forward, honest, informative (and funny) content, created by women for women."
“Our #BlogHer and Wine + Gyn events provide a unique, in-real-life opportunity for brands to directly engage with the women who buy their products and services in a setting that inspires authentic, lively conversation,” said SheKnows Media President and Chief Revenue Officer Samantha Skey. “It’s a powerful, unforgettable experience for consumers to be able to interact with a brand in such a manner. We are thrilled to produce these experiential events for an amazing organization like Vagisil, which for the last 40 years has been developing products that allow women to take control of their vaginal health and thus making them more productive, comfortable and confident. This is women’s empowerment at its most fundamental.”
