Breastfeeding Moms Take A Stand With First Ever Virtual 'Nurse-In'
Huffington Post - about 1 year
To recognize Alyssa Milano and her support for breastfeeding in public, fellow moms have come together to honor the actress in a pretty fitting way. Normalize Breastfeeding, a campaign dedicated to breastfeeding awareness, has arranged a virtual "nurse-in" on Jan. 15 as a token of appreciation for Milano and her role as breastfeeding advocate. The Facebook event page encourages moms to share a #brelfie (breastfeeding selfie) and help normalize breastfeeding. Milano's recent appearance on "The Wendy Williams Show" inspired the event. While talking about breastfeeding in public, host Wendy Williams said, "I don't need to see that." Later, the host referred to breasts as "sexual things" and "fun bags." Milano responded with an important point about the sexualization of women's breasts. "Yeah, but they weren't -- biologically they're not made for sexual things," Milano said. "That's what we've done to them." Williams' commentary motivated a mother to write an open letter accomp ...

Virginia Finally Passes Bill That Will Protect Mothers' Rights To Breastfeed In Public
Huffington Post - about 2 years
After a new bill passed in both the state Senate and House of Delegates this month, Virginia is set to become the 48th state that legally protects mothers' rights to breastfeed in public, wherever and whenever they choose. Current law in the state permits women to nurse their babies on any spaces owned by the Commonwealth of Virginia, but it does not protect their right to breastfeed in a privately owned public location, such as a clothing store, coffee shop or gym. The new legislation, which passed with unanimous bipartisan support in both the Virginia House of Delegates and the Senate, will go into effect in July 2015, pending a signature from Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D). The governor has already expressed his support, The Washington Post reports. Mom Jill DeLorenzo testified before the House of Delegates while babywearing and breastfeeding. Spearheading the effort to pass the bill were mothers Kate Noon, Crystal McCullough and Rebecca Geller, along with sponsors Sen. Jennife ...
