Throughout our human history tell us that women's mental health issue have been ignored around the world for a very long time and there are many examples for it that we can find across many different cultures of the world as well.
Let's talk about the Ancient Egyptians first and why not they are considered as the earliest civilization but their treatment of women was more or less very poor to be fair especially in women's mental health problems. As they had a very popular belief too in 1900 BC that women with poor mental health were suffering from “spontaneous uterus movement.” This was thought to be cured by wafting scents towards the vagina and uterus! So they had plenty of wrong beliefs and blaming women for their suffering.
The Ancient Greeks too were not very different as they also blamed women for their suffering and neglected women's mental health issues. Like one prominent physician at that time believed that emotional conditions in women were due to “uterine melancholy". So yeah a lot of false beliefs and always finding an excuse to not deal with women's mental health problems.
And the things were much worse during the medieval times when women who had mental health issues were treated with discrimination and they were also called as witches and in many cases were even killed. Although the modern times have brought change because of the advancements in medical science and people started taking mental health issues seriously for both men and women.
The liptember was finally founded in 2010 dedicated to raising funds and awareness for women’s mental health, Liptember was able to raise $55,000 for its inaugural year.
The message to take women's mental health seriously had been already told through the times before so the Liptember campaign tried to do something else to get the attention of the people regarding this issue as people often doesn't takes interest or ignores these types of serious campaigns.
