WOMEN all over the world have been baring their breasts as mass gatherings – but it’s all in a good cause, The Sun reports. As World Breastfeeding Week draws to a close, nursing mums gathered in their thousands and proudly fed their babies to celebrate.
In the Philippines, 500 young mums gathered in the capital, Manila, for the annual Hakab Na celebration. They waved signs spelling “Breast is best” as they fed tots together in the open air. In San Jose, the lactating ladies carried out a “mamathon” outside the Legislative Assembly to protest at the recent dismissal of a secretary, sacked for breastfeeding, by the deputy of Costa Rica’s Citizens’ Action Party.
Signs calling for a change in the breastfeeding law were clutched by the women who dubbed the deputy an “Abuser”. Other celebrations took part in China, Columbia, Venezuela and Romania.
