Go Topless Day

Yesterday was Go Topless Day, an organized demonstration staged in dozens of cities across the US and Canada to protest for a woman's right to expose her breasts if she chooses. Using the slogan "Free your breasts! Free your mind!" the Go Topless organization promotes women's right to expose their bare chest to the same extent as men.

World Breastfeeding Week

August 1-7 is World Breastfeeding Week, sponsored by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA). The goal is not only to promote awareness of and communication about the importance of breastfeeding for infants and mothers. World Breastfeeding Week includes events in 170 countries to encourage women to breastfeed their children and to encourage governments and societies to give them the freedom to do so in public. With all the cultural constructions surrounding breasts, we sometimes forget that one of their purposes is to feed our babies.
