Why? According to the National Cancer Institute, “The disproportionate burden of cervical cancer in Hispanic/Latino and African American/Black women is primarily due to a lack of screening. In an effort to understand this disparity in cervical cancer screening, NCI conducted a study of regions within the United States where cervical cancer incidence rates are high. They found that cervical cancer rates reflected a larger problem of unequal access to health care.”
We need more public investment in women’s health to close these gaps. Making access to pap smears and other screening measures more expensive will worsen health disparities in the U.S. and will result in the death of more poor women.
what she means:i've been thinking a lot about how the length of the schuyler sisters's sleeves directly corresponds to their ages, and how angelica has the most elaborate dress while peggy has the simplest one and eliza is in between, which might symbolize their varying levels of life experience and maturity. angelica's dress is pink and pink symbolizes romance, passion, and intuition, eliza's is turquoise which is associated with peace, emotional balance, and sensitivity, and peggy's is yellow which corresponds to hope, cheerfulness, and fun, meaning that the dresses of the schuyler sisters may be directly related to their personalities. was this an intentional decision made by the costume designers or is it just a coincidence? we will never know and that thought haunts me every day
The cool thing about The Raven Cycle is that the aesthetic posts can have like. Psychic and tarot stuff. Prep schools boys in prep school uniform. Magic forests and caves. Explosions. Molotov cocktails. Cars. Bloody knuckles and bloody knees. Guns. Boats. Church. Cows. Barns. Ravens. Nightmare monsters. Medieval kings. Fruit yoghurt. Miniature towns. Market carts. Pink switchblades. Ghosts. Grease-stained hands and clothes. Freaking coca-cola. And all those are like “yes this is 100% raven cycle whoa”
