Why is breast education important?
Breast development can be a positive milestone in the development of the female body, but it can also be an embarrassing and confusing time. Girls can go through periods of self-consciousness, negative body image and low self-esteem as they navigate these changes.
We surveyed over 2000 girls aged 11-17 years
of girls avoided physical activity because of their breasts
of girls reported at least one concern about their breasts
of girls reported never wearing a sports bra for exercise
of girls reported that they wanted to know more about breasts
We believe that girls deserve to receive comprehensive breast education, beyond the biological aspects of puberty taught in schools. By empowering girls with knowledge and awareness we believe that girls' body confidence, health and participation in physical activity can be significantly improved.
