Several weeks ago Emily Gillette was kicked off a Freedom Airlines flight for refusing to cover herself with a blanket while she discreetly breastfed her baby. The flight attendant in question has since been disciplined for violating Ms. Gillette (not to mention her baby)’s human rights but today nursing moms, calling themselves lactivists, held protests at airports all over the country. There is a fabulous slideshow of the protests on Yahoo, be sure to check it out. Kudos to the mamas in Nashville who had a sign that read, “Best in-flight meal ever.” Thanks to all the protesting mamas for raising attention about this kind of harrassment.
