Gayle Sulik Phd is a medical sociologist whose work focuses on the personal and social impact of illness on individuals, families, and communities. Her research on pink ribbon culture has been recognized with a National Endowment for the Humanities fellowship. An independent scholar, she lives in Texas.
Publishers Weekly writes about PINK RIBBON BLUES: "You may never think pink again about breast cancer after reading Sulik's sobering and lucid critique of what she calls 'pink culture'... Sulik's call to 'take a road less pink' demands to be heard."
Sandra Steingraber, author of 'Living Downstream' writes:"Gayle Sulik takes us behind the pink curtain to a peculiar culture where sentimentality takes the place of scientific evidence, personal transcendence fills in for political action, and lofty platitudes replace actionable goals. Pink Ribbon Blues is the Frommer's travel guide to the country of breast cancer."
