I love pink. All of the feminist theory and women’s rights discussions in the world cannot cure me of my love of everything pink. Right now, I’m looking around in my apartment: awesome pink coffee maker, pink sweatpants, pink blanket on the bed… you get the picture.
I also love supporting organizations that are working to support great causes. On Sunday, I had the opportunity to attend a Pink Tea at Westfield Centre, which benefited several breast cancer organizations.
Like most people, I have had family and friends affected by breast cancer. My great-aunt is a 30-ish year survivor.
I have read enough of Peggy Orenstein’s writing on breast cancer awareness that I feel a tad bad about the appropriation of pink everything, but the organizations supported seem to be good and worthwhile.
The event featured tea, a fashion show, and speeches by a few survivors – most notably Giuliana Rancic from E!.
A few very pink pictures:
