International Breastfeeding Journal recently published its
first thematic series on Breastfeeding and feminism: Reproductive health,
rights and justice, edited by Dr Miriam H Labbok, Dr Paige Hall
Smith and Ms Emily C Taylor.
articles in this series focus on nine core discussions held at the third annual Breastfeeding and Feminism Symposia

topics ranging from the feminist portrayal of breastfeeding as a “choice”

aims to continue the momentum initiated at the symposia in motivating
involvement in promoting breastfeeding as a woman’s reproductive health, rights
and justice concern. To see all the articles published in this interesting
