Pink Ribbons: What Are They Tied To?

This is a trailer for a documentary coming out Friday about the "pinkification" of breast cancer. Could it be any more timely, considering the exposure of the Susan G Komen Foundation as a right-wing tool? So much information has emerged, so little time. With many thanks to those who contributed links to my original post on this topic, I'd like to suggest that we support this film, and all efforts to marginalize the SGKF's hijacking of women's health for right-wing causes.
