Considering Our Why

Within healthcare and wellness spaces, it is well known that women are not taken as seriously, often misunderstood, or even accused of making up how we feel. Many clinical studies and methodologies are done only on men. The same results are assumed for the vastly different female anatomy. Looking deeper, other factors like race, ethnic background, and socioeconomic status make accessing high-quality healthcare even more challenging for women.

Considering Our Why

You may have noticed we’ve been transitioning our brand and evolving what who is Moss means. After a wild six months since our launch, we’ve felt into our frustration with the inequity in women’s health and decided to let it breathe. As Tracie Ellis Ross encourages, we must first acknowledge our fury by giving it a language and then allow it to help us create space for change.

Looking deeper, other factors like race, ethnic background, and socioeconomic status make accessing high-quality healthcare even more challenging for women.

We started Moss because we were fed up with a broken system and wanted to be a part of the change. In our endeavors, we’ve realized that fed-up feeling was actually fury around how the broken system affects women and marginalized groups. So, starting next year, Moss will shift its focus from the broader issues within healthcare and wellness to improve quality, access, and equity within women’s healthcare and wellness.

As we dive deeper into this space, we invite you to join us in insisting that women deserve better. Who are some visionary startups and companies in the space we should connect with?
