Summary
This short, powerful film shows women with breast cancer becoming more aggressive when the issue is their health. Women must stop being well-behaved patients. They must learn to pester doctors with demands for information. "We had better stop being nice girls and fight as though our lives depend on it, because they really do!" says one young woman. Clara persisted through three years of misdiagnosis until her tumor was found. Sheryl had to sue her insurance company to pay for a bone marrow transplant that is her only hope for survival. Dr. Carolyn Collins of the University of Washington acknowledges that the treatment options are often difficult to assess. Women must be well informed. Women are learning from the AIDS activists how to fight for their share of federal funds. Although there are almost twice as many deaths from breast cancer, AIDS research receives significantly more money. To right this inequity, women vociferously take their cause to the streets, the courtrooms and the legislatures
