A Voice for the Women of Chiropractic

By Editorial Staff

With an increasing percentage of women entering the profession not only as doctors of chiropractic, but also in various other professional capacities, what better time for the launch of an organization dedicated to empowering the women of chiropractic and nurturing leaders within the profession? Enter the League of Chiropractic Women, which calls itself "a voice for all women in chiropractic – DCs, CAs, spouses, students, administrators, teachers and more," and aspires to "intentionally develop, empower and grow a community and a legacy of powerful and innovative women leaders in loving service for chiropractic," while committing to "serve the vitalistic principles of chiropractic as a subluxation focused and drugless profession."

The LCW was founded on March 31, 2012 by 14 women; founding members include Cynthia Boyd, Jeanne Williamson, Kathi Handt, Kim Gambino, Mary Flannery, Mary Oberstein, Morgan Handt, Pat McLean, Patti Guilliano, Patty Ribley, Sandy Gordon, Selina Sigafoose, Sharon Gorman and Shawn Powers. In an e-mail announcing LCW's launch, Dr. Ribley, LWC board co-president,, shared her enthusiasm for the organization:

"As a practicing female DC, I have felt that for years the voice of the female spirit has not been really heard. The energy that a woman puts into her practice is different and distinct [from] a man. And because of this deference, I've had a very strong innate desire to create an organization that supports all women that love chiropractic, a place where women can come together in support of each other, no matter where she is in life. And therefore The League of Chiropractic Women was born to fulfill that need."

The LCW's inaugural event will be held July 27-28 in Atlanta, Ga., featuring roundtables, workshops, speaker presentations and more. To learn more about the LCW and its July conference, visit www.lcwomen.com.
