Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungPink Ribbon Blues highlights the hidden costs of the 'pink ribbon' as an industry, one in which breast cancer has become merely a brand name with a pink logo. It presents a thought-provoking and probing argument against the industry of awareness-raising and includes stories from real-life breast cancer survivors and caregivers who have struggled with the pink ribbon ideal.
PortraitGayle A. Sulik is a medical sociologist and was a 2008 Fellow of the National Endowment for the Humanities for her research on breast cancer culture.
