Women in Pain (www.forgrace.org)– a website for women who suffer chronic pain— devised the WIP Bill of Rights that all women with chronic pain need to read and follow.
Chronic pain patients often hear that it’s all in their head, especially female patients.
With that cruelty and disregard in mind, women in pain must demand respect by coming to realize their rights.
A woman in pain has the right to:
Have her self-report of pain taken seriously, without prejudice, bias or dismissal.
Express her pain experience in its fullest context in a way that is true to her nature.
Have her pain experience equally assessed to that of a man’s.
