Top Tennis player Serena Williams goes topless for awareness 

The world-famous tennis player Serena Williams has thrown her weight behind the breast cancer awareness movement.  Recording a version of The Divinyls' 'I Touch Myself', she has said that she is doing it to "remind women to self-check regularly". 

"Yes, this put me out of my comfort zone, but I wanted to do it because it’s an issue that affects all women of all colors, all around the world. Early detection is key - it saves so many lives. I just hope this helps to remind women of that," Serena wrote on Instagram.  

In the past, a few global celebs have done such kind of campaigns.  In India, some actresses have gone topless to promote the cause of breastfeeding, for example.  

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

This Breast Cancer Awareness Month I’ve recorded a version of The Divinyls global hit “I Touch Myself” to remind women to self-check regularly. _ Yes, this put me out of my comfort zone, but I wanted to do it because it’s an issue that affects all women of all colors, all around the world. Early detection is key - it saves so many lives. I just hope this helps to remind women of that. _ The music video is part of the I Touch Myself Project which was created in honor of celebrated diva, Chrissy Amphlett, who passed away from breast cancer, and who gave us her hit song to remind women to put their health first. The project is proudly supported by @BerleiAus for Breast Cancer Network Australia. _ Visit the link in my bio to find out more. #ITouchMyselfProject #BerleiAus #BCNA #DoItForYourself
