Why October 7th?
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month… but also, the 7th is the day of the ancient Egyptian goddess Ma’at. She represents all that is right in the world: truth, justice, balance, order, harmony, propriety and reciprocity. Organizing principles to live by in advocacy and in life.
TRUTH – full disclosure of information
JUSTICE – respect for our informed choice
BALANCE – flat advocacy and breast cancer advocacy go hand in hand
ORDER – moving forward diligently, one step at a time
HARMONY – respect for the diversity of experiences of women in the flat community
PROPRIETY – the golden rule
RECIPROCITY – lifting each other up and amplifying each other’s voices
