According to the 2016 National Cancer Registry (NCR) stats, 1 in 25 women in South Africa has a lifetime risk of getting breast cancer.

CANSA also states that approximately 19.4-million women aged 15 years and older live at-risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer.

Users on social media are encouraged to post using the hashtag #nobraday to promote awareness of breast cancer symptoms and to encourage gender equality.

Some users on social media sites also encourage women to post pictures of themselves not wearing a bra.

Some women embrace No Bra Day as a political statement while others prefer the comfort of discarding what they view as a restrictive, uncomfortable garment.

The first No Bra Day event was created by an anonymous internet user self-named “Anastasia Doughnuts” for July 9, 2011, and was observed on that date through 2013. In 2013 and 2014, social media posts announced both July 9 and October 13 as No Bra Day.

Since 2015, the event has only been promoted on October 13. The event was initially described, in part, as:

Boobies are Fantastic… We all think so. And what better way to express the way we feel than to support a full day of boobie freedom?? …
Women are magnificent creatures, and so are their breasts. Let us spend the day unleashing boobies from their boobie zoos.

**Breast Cancer is something you should take seriously and be checked for.**
