The Breast Views Blog: Year End Breast Overview

This particular list of 'breast facts' comes out of Bombay, India. I post it, not because I found it particularly insightful, but because of the memory that was triggered.

On my last day in India, after 6 weeks of way too much attention, I flipped my lid. Dressed in the baggest, camouflage get up imaginable, I wandered into a market place. People milled about while I carefully and mindfully made my way along the aisles.

Then it happened. Out of nowhere, a male hand firmly clenched my right breast. Given the number of assaults my pups had survived on an hourly basis, and the level of fury that had grown and boiled inside me, my reflex kicked in with the speed of a bullet. I grabbed the hand still on my breast and with ruthless glee, drove my thumb nail into the soft flesh. Skin broke and blood appeared, but I remained clenched. Not until the mans face, distorted in pain, broke into my sight line did I relent, flinging his hand so hard that he slapped his own face.

It was definitely time to go home.

The Breast Views Blog: Pregnant With Cancer Network

Given all my resent posts about breastfeeding, I thought this would be a helpful resource to share.

The stated mission of Pregnant With Cancer Network is:

"To let you know that you are not alone. Being diagnosed with cancer when you're pregnant can be a terrifying and lonely experience. You may feel like the only pregnant woman to ever be given such devastating news."

The Breast Views Blog: GLORIA STEINEM

When I was attending University back in the 80's, Gloria came to speak. At that point in time I would have leg wrestled anyone on any topic dealing with women's rights, so focused was I on beating the pulp out of 'the oppressor'. Gloria was the Queen of Feminists in my mind. I sat rapt throughout her talk. It was a heady, slightly agitated time.

Both Gloria and I are older and I will boldly say wiser now. I'll add calmer, and more confident too. Your legs are now safe.

You may find Ms. Steinem's speech from the 3rd Annual Women & Power Conference, organized by Omega Institute and V-Day worth a read.
