The movement started in 2011 and largely takes place on social media. The event was adopted in the U.S. in 2012. The observance has spread worldwide. The event was spun off a medical event in Toronto, Canada, that encourages breast cancer survivors to consider reconstructive surgery. First held on October 19, 2011, the medical event was named Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day (BRA). See Instagram or Facebook or Google photos and videos from #NoBraDay. This hashtag was trending on Twitter. As of 2017 the day was observed by women in 30 countries, including New Zealand, Romania, Czech Republic, Greece, Malaysia, Scotland, India, and Ghana.
On this day, millions of women leave their bras at home to promote the cause of breast cancer awareness and remind women everywhere that they should get screened for breast cancer on a regular basis.
