Boobs out down under

The country’s Minister for the Status of Women, Gail Gago, is taking her job title literally, having pledged support for the Sydney women who staged a ‘Boob Out’ at Facebook’s Aussie headquarters two weeks ago.

The 60-strong group of mothers were protesting Facebook’s policy of removing photos from users’ profiles that depict them breastfeeding.

It was prompted by the experience of Sydney mother Lucy Allen, who says her Facebook account was deactivated for two days in July last year when she posted photos of herself breastfeeding and pumping milk. “Breastfeeding your child is a natural thing to do,” explained Gago. “There is no valid reason for any social media network to ban legitimate pictures posted by women of themselves breastfeeding their own children.”
