Questioning press release info
Is this nurse-in also not about corporations educating their employees at all levels, but especially at managerial levels, regarding the right of a woman to feed her child? I understand the stated information, and certainly agree with it, as NC has a WONDERFUL breastfeeding law, but I just feel that VS is being "let off the hook" by this statement. If this be true, why isn't the nurse-in on the steps of the capitol? See what I'm saying? Thanks for any insight
"This nurse-in is not about Victoria’s Secret’s lack of enforcing their company policy; the company only prompted the awareness for a need for state and federal protection for nursing mothers. The federal government has invested a lot of time and money into advertising about breastfeeding being the best nutrition for babies, but without federal protection, some moms might give up when they’re told that breast milk is dirty and unsanitary. To make those federal dollars most effective, we have to protect and educate; protect a mother’s right to nurse in public, and educate those that work with the public on the proper way to handle nursing in public and those that might complain about it."
