“Arguably the most common devastating disease that most people have never heard of. It affects at least one in nine women. It is the cause of up to 50% of infertility cases in women.”

Endometriosis is the subject of director Shannon Cohn’s documentary Below the Belt. She tells how women have been overlooked, disbelieved and gaslit by medical practitioners and policymakers - and why that has to stop.
