Tanya Plibersek, the Federal Member for Sydney, Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs and Deputy Leader of the Opposition in the Australian Parliament, has been named Ambassador for the #itouchmyselfproject.
The #itouchmyselfproject was announced today to raise awareness of breast cancer. The theme song is Divinyls ‘I Touch Myself’. This week marks the one year anniversary of the death of singer Chrissy Amphlett from breast cancer.
“Since I was very young I always thought Chrissy Amphlett was a totally cool rock star,” Tanya said about the project.”One of the things I noticed as I got older and she got older was that she embodied so many themes in a woman’s life”.
Tanya said Chrissy had a “gentle, naive and vulnerable part of her personality but also a tough, kick-arse part of her personality. Showing so many aspects of her own character was a very empowering thing for the people who grew up admiring her”.
