Description - Pink Ribbons, Inc. by Samantha King
In Pink Ribbons, Inc., Samantha King traces how breast cancer has been transformed from a stigmatised disease and individual tragedy to a market-driven industry of survivorship. In an unprecedented outpouring of philanthropy,
corporations turn their formidable promotion machines on the curing of the disease while dwarfing public health prevention efforts and stifling the calls for investigation into why and how breast cancer affects such a vast number
of people. Here, for the first time, King questions the effectiveness and legitimacy of privately funded efforts to stop the epidemic among American women.
