double mastectomy

last week hollywood actress Angelina Jolie wrote an open letter to the NY Times, admitting she had gotten a double mastectomy as a preventative measure to reduce her risk of getting breast cancer. for an actress whose career relies on her looks and her body, and being married to one of the world’s sexiest men (so hailed multiple times over the past decade and a half) – this is an uncommonly brave admission. Although we in the aid industry enjoy taking the Brangelina duo to task for their many adopted children from developing countries, as a feminist i have to take my hat off to Ms. Jolie for her honesty.
