The Great Virtual Breast Fest

October 9, 2007 at 2:33 pm (feminism, neat things) (, )

That great title comes from the League of Maternal Justice who, tomorrow, are hosting an event by that name in support of breastfeeding mothers.

Activate your wonder powers by pulling out your boobs on October 10, 2007 at 10:00am (your time) (mark your calendars!) and showing the world that you’re a boobtastic superhero mom and damn proud of it.

We’re asking women around the world to speak out – and squirt out! – against the banning of breastfeeding pictures on Facebook, as well as against the constant onslaught of negative attention toward breastfeeding mothers in public spaces and in the media.

That’s right. We’re staging a virtual nurse-in!

On October 10 at 10am (your time), women around the US and Canada and – we hope – the world will breastfeed for justice. We’ll nurse our babies or bottle-feed our babies or reminisce about doing either of those things and we’ll post pictures and video, all together, and let the world know that there is no shame, only power, in caring for our children.

Contribute what you’d like through the League’s website and then check back again tomorrow for a video montage of all submitted materials.
