Every year on October13th, some women all over the world mark #NoBraDay in support of breast cancer awareness month.
#NoBraDay: Boobie Freedom Day For Women
So as some women decide to leave their bras at home to mark the boobie freedom day for women, it makes me wonder if actually it is backed by the breast cancer .
As some support the day to raise awareness about breast cancer, some, do it just for attention which makes the day lose its meaning.
The day also gives some people an opportunity to sexualize and mock women’s bodies rather than raise awareness.
Come to think of it, does seeing a bra-less woman flaunting ther breasts — which these days is see on a regular day — any supportive to a person who has cancer. In fact, it feels quite the opposite.
This day should be to focus on the struggle of the women not the mummeries.
Whether your boobs are adorable, jiggly, miniature, bouncy, glistening or naughty or jelly like, ladies are confidently spending 24 hours free from bra support.
As much as the no bra occasion appeals to women only, men interested in raising awareness can join in the by wearing something pink or purple as a sign of support.
Although breast cancer is most prevalent amongst white women, there has been an alarming increase amongst black South Africans. It’s the second most common disease they are diagnosed with.
It’s important for women to examine their breast often because the sooner breast cancer is diagnosed, the better your chances of beating it.
So learn to do breast self examinations every month a week after your period.
