Lactate With A Latte, Part II

Check out this article from Women’s eNews about the mothers’ fight to feed her baby in public. After writing a post this summer on the infamous breast-feeding protests at Starbucks, it’s sad to find that the lactating ladies are still having a hard time.
Despite the breast-feeding campaigns that have been spreading across the nation, and although over 30 states already have laws protecting breast-feeding in public, women are still continually being violated of their rights by being asked to cover themselves up.
Are there really so many people concerned with this “public indecency” of a woman, or does society have a hard time accepting the breast’s natural function due of its over-sexualization, as Mary Lofton of La Leche League International suggests? Both seem pretty evident to me.
After you check out the article, take a peek at La Leche International’s website. La Leche International is an advocacy group for breast-feeding. Very interesting stuff.
