About Kath


Kath Mazzella is a gynaecological cancer survivor. After her surgery she discovered how little women knew and talked about gynaecological conditions, and how many women were suffering in silence. This empowered Kath to go on a journey …

After placing an advertisement in a women’ s magazine, Kath was able to contact others with similar experiences and this drove her to establish the Gynaecological Awareness Information Network Inc. (GAIN) which has informed and supported thousands of women.

She is a powerful advocate for gynaecological and sexual health, personally inspiring women and arguing for institutional and social change that delivers better awareness, prevention, treatment and support.

Kath is an inspirational public speaker and the founder of the International Gynaecological Awareness Day. She won the Zonta International “Woman of Achievement Award” for Western Australia in 2005 and was recently awarded the Most Inspiring Woman of the Year by the Momentum Women’s Forum.
