I've been having a think.This could be a marketing opportunity for BCNA that would have national appeal. I'll take a blind guess that they have already spent a shit load of money prepping for a launch of the new Pink Lady rebranding but there is nothing like a graceful reversal of policy in response to community feedback if you want publicity.I'll bet that the interest in changing the name of a magazine would be of, meh, interest to the media. Not changing it because the female online contributors got their hackles up in support of their male counterparts would get them interviews with all the national media. It would be a feel good story that could generate tremendous support.Ive been involved with BCNA for a long, long time. They are genuinely trying to give us a voice and without them this forum would not exist. I'm incredibly grateful for what they do. The pink lady is a terrific initiative, imagine if 'she' was wearing blue shorts and rainbow socks.
Men.... the CEO is Christine NolanChief Executive Officernot Christine Nixon....
I agree with @Zoffiel that adding the blue and rainbow versions would be a great idea but what shape would the rainbow one need to be ?Hey @traveltext - I wonder how serious BCNA was with your blue men ? Love the photo.
I think they are serious, they just don't know how to slot us into the PR system in an established sense. That is, not just an add on.In May 2005 BCNA held a cancer awareness campaign at the MCG.They said at the time: "In poignant and emotional scenes, more than 11,500 women and 100 men clad in pink and blue ponchos respectively – many of them breast cancer survivors - gathered on the arena before the game, filling the outline of a female figure stretching almost from one end of the ground to the other."Note the inclusion of men back then with the little dots of blue! I think we're close to getting some blue on the pink again. Just gotta keep pushing
