Global No Bra Day is October 13 and it’s to promote breast cancer awareness and raises money for research to fight the disease, as it falls right smack in the middle of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It is also a way to show solidarity with those who have fought breast cancer.
In Ghana, many are marking the day and interestingly, the men are even more excited about the day than their women counterparts who are supposed to observe it by leaving their bras at home. However, two Ghanaian celebrities, Ebony (dance hall artiste) and Afia Schwarzenegger (radio presenter) are greatly happy and are marking the day exactly the way its supposed to be.
The two, have had a lot of their followers on social media asking them to go topless since already they occasionally dont wear bra. Afia almost did by wearing no bra except to cover her chest with a long hair.
Ebony, who Counselor Luttrodt has told not to mark the day because every day has been no bra day for her said “Did I hear no bra day?#Dateurfada” and posted the picture below:
Afia, also posted the picture below saying “The movement started in 2011 and largely takes place on social media, where women use the hashtag #nobraday to campaign.
The aim is to raise awareness and encourage women to carry out self-examinations, screenings, and make sure they know the signs of breast cancer.
ladies are encouraged to get a mammogram screening on October 13 – which can help detect breast cancer up to two years before it can be felt by the patient or a doctor.
