In the Russian Federation, the growth of the oncological incidence of genital tract is registered. This requires increasing the responsibility of women for their health. The results of the All-Russian educational project "Women of different age between oncological negligence and phobia: How to prevent cancer?", which was started in 2015, are presented in the paper. The research was initiated by the Association RAGIN and is conducted with the support of MARS, DVISOR, the Association of Medical Journalists and a number of medical and public organizations. To study the awareness of the female population and health workers regarding preventive measures and the intake of hormonal drugs, 4846 women aged 18 to 65 years who lived in 32 Russian cities filled out the special questionnaires. It is shown that not all women are reasonable about their health: a behavioral reaction in almost half of the respondents varies from negligence to phobia, including the attitude toward taking hormonal drugs. This may be the reason for refusing to visit screening examinations and late seeking medical help
