40k people a year die from breast cancer. That number, despite all the pink ribbons money can buy, has not changed since 1970. #Thread
Stage-4 breast cancer is also called metastatic breast cancer. Metastasis occurs in about 30% of women diagnosed with breast cancer...
...and it comes with an average three-year survival rate.
.@METUPorg estimates that only 7% of breast cancer research funding goes toward studying metastatic breast cancer...
...despite the fact that 30% of people diagnosed with breast cancer will have it metastasize.
The lack of progress can be credited to a few things: lack of research funding and gaps in the data.
And although this all seems bleak, there’s a network of activists committed to changing this. damemagazine.com/2017/10/26/why…

We’re always proud of the work we publish and recently our brilliant writers have taken it to new levels! #ICYMI here’s a roundup from @MollyRingwald, @JillFilipovic, @VABVOX, @ashleyn1cole, @Echidne, @sarahljaffe, @chgrimaldi, @DrStaceyPatton, @robinmarty, and @thebookslut:
.@MollyRingwald: “Strangely, despite having lived with the threat of a ruthless criminal striking in such proximity, I felt safe. I suppose this is a testament to my parents and the psychological security they provided me.”

.@JillFilipovic: “When young, white men do lash out by shooting up their schools, the media too often frames their actions as men provoked by women’s (understandable) actions to separate themselves from the kind of guy who would shoot up a school.”

Last night, the @CommerceGov said it would add a citizenship question to the #2020Census. In theory, it’s about getting an accurate count for purposes of the Voting Rights Act. In reality, it’s a racist xenophobic move with severe long-term consequences. commerce.gov/sites/commerce…
The census is an incredibly important tool that touches so many aspects of American lives. It’s the foundational data for everything from voting rights for black people, median earnings for women versus men, fertility rates, and more.

The census is also the tool used to draw federal and state political districts and it helps determine what federal dollars get spent where. damemagazine.com/2017/05/15/cen… #2020Census
