Breasts As Objects

Well, it certainly doesn’t help breastfeeding matters any when women’s breasts are seen as objects of gratification as opposed to means to feed one’s baby. This photograph was taken of a carnival at Shelby County Fair and Horse Show Shelbyville, Kentuckym August 1940 Aug. Baby formula had made a huge insurgence in baby-feeding by 1940.

  1. I do agree with you. I think when breasts are objectified (which I think is happening in this case) it harms the breastfeeding cause.

    Thank you so much for suggesting the book!
