Cicatrius (in)visibles (The Invisible Scars), a new book edited by Ana Porroche-Escudero, Gerard Coll-Planas, and Caterina Riba was published in March (2016) by Capsa de Pandora. The book, translated into in Catalan, demystifies the dominant discourses of pink ribbon culture, analyzes androcentric, political, and economic biases in breast cancer biomedicine, and explores embodied resistance to socially constructed body rules and conventions about breast cancer. The editors are seeking opportunities to translate and publish the book in English and Spanish, so stay tuned! Table of Contents: Preface.
