The Debate Over The Sexualization Of Breast Cancer

2715908068_80d3fc88cb_z.jpg

Are pink ribbon campaigns sexist? That’s the charge some critics are lobbing at mainstream breast cancer organizations. We’ve assembled three women on opposite sides of the debate: Heather Goulding, executive director of the Northern Nevada branch of the nonprofit Susan G. Komen Foundation; Beth Caldwell, co-founder of the metastatic breast cancer awareness group, MET-UP; and Dr. Kelly Shanahan, who runs the Emerald Bay Center for Women’s Health in South Lake Tahoe.
