Lissa Rankin refuses to be put in any one box, and in that simple fact, she attracts readers, patients, healers, collectors, and admirers around the world. Her message and her example are redefining what it means to be healthy, vibrant and alive as a woman in the Twenty-first Century.
As a practicing gynecologist, a nationally-represented professional artist, teacher, mother and author of What’s Up Down There? Questions You’d Only Ask Your Gynecologist If She Was Your Best Friend (St. Martin’s Press, September 2010, with foreword by Dr. Christiane Northrup, author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom), Lissa Rankin started a simple blog in 2009 to document her personal quest to integrate all the fragmented facets of her being. OwningPink.com immediately caught fire with readers from all walks of life who were seeking their authentic selves and saw in Lissa a growing soul and kindred spirit. Owning Pink has grown strongly and steadily in its first year – hosting more than 40 authors and coaches, supporting a national tour, opening an integrative wellness center, producing a stunning art exhibit, and spawning a community of over 63,000 social media followers and over 260,000 readers.
