Wear Something YELLOW & Post your PIPCrime Specs selfie on the social network 16-18 March 2015 in solidarity and support of over 500,000 women and their families worldwide affected by fraudulent PIP breast implants.
On the 16-18 March 2010, the French health regulator conducted the first scrupulous audit at the PIP factory. The order to close the plant came as a result. Five years later, women with non-compliant PIP implant are still struggling to access healthcare & have this toxic mess removed from their bodies. The fight for justice for women continues!
The series of catastrophic failures in the regulation of medical devices such as metal-on-metal hip prosthetics, surgical mesh and PIP implants have revealed dangerous flaws in the regulation of the medical devices, cosmetics, aesthetic surgery, health, silicone & chemical industries. The PIP scandal shows how failures to provide women with a Duty of Care, consumer protection, victim support, best practise guidelines, adequate scientific reviews, government reports or risk assessments are linked to the deeply ingrained negative stereotyping, discrimination and victim blaming at the heart many European and international governments.
