WHAT IS COMPLETELY FEMALE?

Created in June 2019, Complément Femme is a non-profit association. We are Amazons, that is to say that we have experienced the removal of one or two breasts.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Our dream: that women feel good with their new body after a mastectomy.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

For this we offer an innovative and above all positive vision of Amazons in order to help women tame their scars and feel good in their body after a mastectomy.

PASCALE CONTRINO

President - Co-founder

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Artist, mom, lover and…. Amazon I created in April 2019 the Completely Woman face-book page - The daring to be whole after a mastectomy, in order to share my paintings and drawings celebrating the diversity and beauty of Amazons.
Since then, the page has become that of our association and I now put my energy and my creativity at the service of women in order to show that living as an Amazon is a valid and beautiful choice.

VALÉRIE BLONDEAU

Treasurer - Co-founder

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Asymmetric since my teenage years, I learned archery, horseback riding, martial arts inspired by the Amazons, without knowing that I would become one of them one day. Foreigners, warriors, the Amazons intrigued the Greeks above all because of their freedom, movement, thought and way of life. Beauty is an extreme, perfection an average. The Amazon is on the side of beauty. And when she has to fight, it is with art.

TESS BRALY

Secretary

Amazon since 2019, a happy meeting with Valérie introduced me to the association. I already wanted to develop clothes for amazons, because finding the clothes that fit well when they are not designed for a single breast is not easy. And then I needed to transform this traumatic experience into a social contribution, and I am delighted to get involved in this association which is doing so much good.

CATHY LIPRANDI

Deputy Secretary

Amazon since 2018, I realized that the urgency of the surgery did not give us the opportunity to make a serene decision concerning the reconstruction.
When I met Pascale, Valérie and Tess with whom I shared the choice of a flat reconstruction, I wanted to inform, prevent and disseminate the idea that asymmetry is aesthetic.
I share with these sisters of heart the values of the association but also the great adventure of life.
We are 20,000 more each year and yet we are invisible.
Through our actions, I nourish the hope that we will all one day be perfectly fulfilled.
