As research continues to reveal the harmful effects of social media on young women, E Woman champions a safe space to protect women's mental health. According to the Pew Research Center, 69% of adults and 81% of teens in the U.S. use social media, and the consequences are staggering. Studies link increased social media use "with poor sleep, online harassment, low self-esteem, and negative body image, all associated with depressive symptoms, especially for girls."
"As a mother, it's disturbing to hear more and more new research coming out on the negative effects of social media. We wanted to create a safe space to empower women and support their mental health," said Amy Karaman, founder of E Woman.
One of E Woman's most popular online groups is the Mental Health Group, which has twice as many members as any other community on E Woman. In this group, women can anonymously share their struggles, unburden themselves, and help uplift each other. E Woman users say it's relieving to have a place where they can open up about their struggles anonymously. In contrast, other users noted that it was life-changing to be able to share their stories and "unburden" themselves in a supportive community. Women from all walks of life can participate, connect, and hear other women's stories.
One in five women have a mental health diagnosis, with depression being the most common issue; depression appears twice as often as in men, making women especially vulnerable to the consequences of social media scrolling. E Woman provides the first social network for women to intimately connect and support each other through mental health pressures and struggles - without mindlessly scrolling through random acquaintances' life updates.
"Women's self-care isn't just spa days and pedicures; quite often, it's having tough conversations about mental health or sharing emotional situations without judgment, all within a group of women who feel the same," explained Karaman.
