Nurse-Ins are happening around the world Monday, February 6 from approximately 10am-1pm local time (unless otherwise specified) to tell Facebook to STOP harassing ALL women over breastfeeding pictures.
Facebook has been removing photos of breastfeeding and banning mothers for posting such photos, deeming them as “sexually explicit content.” This is discrimination against breastfeeding mothers. This nurse-in will protest Facebook’s removal of breastfeeding photos. We are legally protected as mothers to nurse our children in public, that includes public social networks on the internet. It is important for these images to be seen and accepted in order to normalize breastfeeding in our society.
The following is a list of scheduled events at Facebook offices. If you live near an event, please click the link to be redirected to the group page which will offer more details. The more people that attend, the more impact it will have. If you live near a Facebook office where there is not an event scheduled yet and you would like to help organize, please send a private message to one of the other event hosts which you can find by clicking any of the links to a scheduled event.
Support the cause and change your Facebook profile picture to a breastfeeding photo. You can support our cause even if you are not a breastfeeding mom by changing your picture to the International Breastfeeding Symbol (this event’s photo) and by spreading the word.Please visit the links below for details and contact us if we are missing any information.
