In honor of tonight’s display of breast-pumping photos and stories at Somerville city hall I’ve made this breast-like pendant. Milk is sustenance. Milk is life. Milk is hard to produce (I can tell you I needed a LOT of donuts each day that I was lactating) and hard to store. And we don’t talk about it enough. There’s still a long way to go before working women in the U.S. have the support, space, time and encouragement that they need to continue to breastfeed after returning to their jobs.
