FIELD OF WOMEN Live - Proud Aussie Women ...

On Saturday 11 August 2007, at Telstra Stadium before the Sydney Swans Game against St Kilda an amazing event took place.

The Sydney Swans, the AFL and Telstra Stadium in partnership with Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) staged the first ever Sydney, Field of Women Live prior to the game.

Over 13,000 women and approximately 100 men - representing the number of Australians diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 - stood together to create the first ever Sydney Field of Women LIVE.











What a fabulous sight - makes me proud to be an Aussie!

What a brilliant event! It must have been amazing to see it live - but frightening too, it brings home exactly how many people are affected by breast cancer in a very vivid way, doesn't it.

I only hope this is something that 'catches on' worldwide! It's a very healing, cathartic and stupendous event - bringing so many together through such sadness yet with great strength!
