The Ghana Outstanding Women Awards (GOWA), has nominated Elizabeth Amoaa, a Ghanaian woman with a rare Uterus Didelphys and other reproductive health issues for its 2020 awards.
The Ghanaian based in the United Kingdom (UK) received multiple nominations- Outstanding Woman in Health, Outstanding Woman in Social Community and SHERO of the Year.
Ms. Amoaa, also known as ‘Speciallady’, has over the years used her condition to champion issues of female reproductive health. Her story has been published in both national and international media platforms.
GOWA, which identifies and acknowledges women who contribute their quota to society and make a positive impact, recognised the extraordinary work of Elizabeth through her advocacy for female gynaecological health.
She has generously donated medical supplies, educational materials, clothing and toys worth thousands of pounds since she established Speciallady Awareness in 2017.
Speciallady Awareness also educates supports and guides women on gynaecological conditions.
She has visited several schools, communities and hospitals in Ghana to raise awareness on gynaecological conditions and menstrual hygiene.
In the UK, she has spoken at charity conferences, local churches, communities and at the British Army Wives’ events.
Upon receiving her nominations, Elizabeth posted on her social media page “if I hadn’t been diagnosed with various Women Reproductive Health issues and undergone several surgeries and complications, I wouldn’t have become the Voice of the Voiceless…”
Elizabeth continues to strive to make a positive impact both in Ghana and internationally.
