The news that Angelina Jolie - one of the world's most glamorous women - had undergone a double mastectomy at the age of 37 stunned the world this week and brought a very relevant debate to the forefront of international media.
Faced with an 87% chance of developing breast cancer in the future, Jolie underwent her procedure as a preventative measure - one that brought her risk of developing the disease down to just 5%. And her journey isn't yet at an end, with the actress and mum of six reportedly planning to continue her preemptive fight against cancer by removing her ovaries.
In an article published in the New York Times, Jolie expressed her hope that, by speaking out about her decision to undergo a prophylactic mastectomy, she might empower women everywhere.
