The Witchery White Shirt campaign hinges on the power and importance of vital research needed to ensure that women everywhere, are free from the threat of ovarian cancer. The research endeavours to develop an early detection test for ovarian cancer that is as accessible as a pap smear (for cervical cancer) or a mammogram (for breast cancer).

With no obvious symptoms until the later stages and no early detection test available for the disease, ovarian cancer has a significantly lower survival rate than breast and cervical cancer.

The Witchery White Shirt collection will be available to shop online via witchery.com.au and in-store throughout Australia and New Zealand from Thursday 11 April 2019. The OCRF White Shirt Day and World Ovarian Cancer Day is Wednesday 8 May 2019, marking the conclusion of this important Australian campaign.

An amazing line-up of influential women are soon to be announced to join McNamee as ambassadors for the 2019 Witchery White shirt campaign. Previous ambassadors of the campaign include Rose Byrne, Miranda Kerr, Jodi Gordon, Carrie Bickmore, Cheyenne Tozzi, Ksenija Lukich, Samantha Harris and Jessica Rowe.

Sydney-born McNamee rose to fame in Australia playing roles in the Seven Network television programmes Home and Away and Packed to the Rafters. Most recently, McNamee starred as Margaret Court in Battle of the Sexe sand in thriller film The Meg alongside Jason Statham and Ruby Rose.

“I am so proud to be supporting this incredible cause, bringing further awareness to ovarian cancer and the importance of finding an early detection test.”

For every white shirt sold, Witchery will donate 100% of the gross proceeds to the OCRF, which will allow for further vital research needed to ensure that women, everywhere are free from the threat of ovarian cancer. To date, the Witchery White Shirt Campaign has raised over $12.1 million but there is still work to be done.
