Why Wear Pink?

Senior citizen Jean S. talks about the color pink and its meaning to her.

I personally do not wear the color pink, because I cannot pull that color off. I am aware that nowadays pink has a much greater significance than just a color. It represents being feminine since the day little girls are born. They are warmly wrapped in pink cotton blankets to identify their gender. Over time it has been known as the color to support breast cancer. I proudly support breast cancer, but refuse to wear [pink] due to my opinion of how I look in pink.
