Movember For Women?

November 3, 2011

For those that do not know, from Wikipedia: 

Movember is an annual, month-long event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November. The event was conceived in 1999 by a group of Australian men from Adelaide. It is also know as “Novembeard”.

Since 2004, the Movember Foundation charity has run Movember events to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer and depression, in Australia and New Zealand. In 2007, events were launched in Ireland, Canada, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Greece, Spain, the United Kingdom, Israel, South Africa, and the United States.

In 2010, Movember merged with the testicular cancer event Tacheback. Also in 2010, Movember was marked and moustaches were grown by friends of leukemia patient Michael Simning, in Gwangju City, South Korea.

This got me thinking:

If NFL football players can wear pink to raise awareness for breast cancer during the month of October…

… then I wonder how many women are willing NOT to bleach or wax their mustaches for Movember and support men the way that men support women during the month of October?

C’mon ladies! Stand in solidarity with the male community! Let the mustaches grow!
