Role of a Mo Sista

Author: Movember

During Movember men around the globe unite, joined together by the moustache, committed to 30 hairy days and nights growing for men’s health. But, beside every great Mo Bro is an equally amazing Mo Sista, acting as a driving force for men’s health awareness and providing invaluable encouragement for the moustache. 
 
Mo Sistas are women who support the men in their lives growing Mo’s and understand the importance of men taking care of their health. They play a vital role in the journey of a Mo Bro. A kind word of encouragement, a wink or a smile of recognition can go a long way to helping a Mo Bro as he navigates the month of Movember – this may be particularly true in the first few weeks when growth can, for some, be a little bit slow.
 
Mo Sistas are agents of change who seek to inspire friends, colleagues, family members and partners to take an active role in their health. Studies have shown that men are less likely than women to talk about their health as well as visit a physician. Women play an key role in encouraging men to take action to address any health problems they may be experiencing 
 
The Movember participation of a Mo Sista can extends far beyond signing up on Movember.com and starting conversations about men’s health – it also involves raising funds and organizing events. Below are a few ideas for Mo Sistas:
