Caitlin Carmody has a very excellent post up on the Think Before You Pink website about what is missing in the pink ribbon approach to breast cancer ‘awareness’, namely that they, “don’t encourage us to think about social justice.”

Amen to that.  Carmody goes on to offer an excellent list of reasons why we need to make the connection between breast cancer and social justice:

When we examine those questions, we get a very different awareness than just run for the cure, get a mammogram and eat right.  Kudos to Carmody for this excellent re-framing.
