Watch Serena Williams sing “I Touch Myself” for Breast Cancer Awareness

Serena Williams wants to remind women to touch themselves for Breast Cancer Awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and so, Serena Williams teamed up with I Touch Myself Project and sang the song “I Touch Myself,” originally by the Divinyls. The Divinyls lead singer, Chrissy Amphlett, died from breast cancer in 2013. 

Williams has been in the headlines most recently from the French and US Open where she defended women athletes and their ability to talk back to referees if they feel something is unfair. Serena has become an advocate for women’s equality and has inspired women and girls around the world. Now, she’s stepping outside of her comfort zone to sing and encourage women to give themselves self-examinations for breast cancer. 

Williams took to Instagram on September 29 saying, “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.”
