Dining For Two – New Ad Campaign Shows Mothers Confined To Bathrooms To Breastfeed Their Children
A powerful new ad campaign from two Texas students has tackled the issue of breastfeeding in public, by asking “would you eat here?”
The ad campaign highlights three women in various bathrooms, who are breastfeeding their children. Slogan titles for the images include ‘Bon Appetite’ and ‘Table for Two’.
The images are taken from the When Nurture Calls campaign, which is hoping to open discussion on the taboo issue of breastfeeding in public.
The project is looking to open debate around “mothers who have been harassed to the point where they feel they have no other option but to nurture their baby in the restroom as to not offend anyone”.
The students behind the campaign, Kris Haro and Johnathan Wenske, have also designed an app as part of their Breast Friends project, which will allow mothers to search for places that support breastfeeding and have a friendly attitude towards it in their home state.
There is currently no law in Texas to protect mothers from harassment and refusal of service in public, often forcing them to feed in secluded spaces such as public bathrooms.
