The culture, history, economy, and politics of the Southern states have been studied extensively. Yet, one element of life in the South has received much less attention: women 's experiences during childbirth (Simon, Richard M. "Women 's Birth Experiences and Evaluations: A View from the American South" no. 1, 2016, pp.1-38). Childbirth plays a substantial role in enslaved woman 's lives positively and negatively. During slavery, enslaved poor women who were wet-nurses were forced to give up their milk just to feed another women’s child. Feeding another woman 's child with one 's own milk constituted a form of labor, but it was work that could only be undertaken by lactating women who had borne their own children (West, E. and Knight, R. "Mother 's Milk: Slavery, Wet-Nursing and Black and White Women in the Antebellum South" no. 37, 2017, pp.
As a group, society gets uncomfortable when it comes to women’s sexuality and nudity, especially in public. Natalie Angier, a journalist and New York Times best-selling author, is not intimidated when it comes to these matters. In her book An Intimate Geography, Angier explores the female body and all of its wonders. This novel opened my eyes and my attitudes to many events that are happening in society. When reading Natalie Angier’s book, the element that captivated my attention the most was the chapter regarding breasts, titled Circular Reasoning.

There are many women in the world still being ignored today everywhere. There are unjust actions in court, in public, in homes, and many other places. Women need to be recognized as good mothers and strong figures in the public. We need to bring the importance of their love to breastfeed their children, raise them, and to give birth to them. They also have done many goodness for societies all around the world as leaders and volunteers to help the community they belong in. Yet there are people getting horrible treatments in court and public for breastfeeding. It has gotten to the point where breastfeeding was being regularly asked to stop in courts to give more child custody to the father, equal custody. (Which is not caring about the health
Breasts can be sexual. Yes, the breast can be sexual but if you are feeding your baby in public then people should not worry about it, a mother that is feeding her baby who is hungry should not have to worry about other people shaming her for what she is doing what is best for her child, a mother should be comfortable wherever she is and whenever. Why stare at her and make her uncomfortable? The Oklahoma State Department of Health states that Oklahoma mothers have the right to breastfeed anywhere they have a right to be, and shall be excused from jury duty if upon request.

The baby project is a huge topic to write about, no I don 't mean controversial I mean struggle, and how much this simple project can change your view in teen pregnancy and having to take care of a kid at this age. It may seem all simple and easy but thanks to this project we learned how hard it can all become at the end.
Ancient Greek culture is majorly influential in Western culture. Major works of literature, art, and political structure from ancient Greece remain relevant to modern Western society. However one can contrast these two societies by observing and valuing the art of ancient Greece. One can differentiate ancient Greek culture and modern Western culture by analyzing the treatment of religious figures, attitude towards emotion, and reaction towards nudity in each society.
At 21 year old, I identify as a Black African-American female in the lower income tier of Gainesville Florida. Due to my beliefs in a divine God and Jesus Christ, I am a Christian. All my life, I have been told by many to be proud of the skin that I was in because my ancestors and people like us were brave and courageous people who fought for what we as Black African Americans have now such as freedom. To understand how deep my lesson of wearing my skin proud, I have to make it known that I am Haitian, and as a little girl, I knew of Haiti’s history, of my ancestors’ fight for freedom, of the pride I should take in knowing that such people were part of our past. Than coming to the U.S, it was a different set of people that fought for freedom,
A big part of why female dress codes have become unrealistic is that they are developing more, and that means that certain things will look better than others, or certain things may be “more acceptable” than others. There is nothing a female can do about how slowly or quickly they are developing, so why are they always getting in trouble for what they’re wearing? If their shirts are covering them so you can’t see their stomachs or bras in an inappropriate way, or their shorts/pants aren’t showing their personal areas then they’re not doing anything wrong. When females get in trouble for a bra strap showing, they put an undershirt on underneath, but still get in trouble because that undershirt strap is visible. You’re bringing that girl’s confidence down and making them feel like it’s not okay that all these changes are happening.
In The Guide “Best Practice Guide from Implementation of Creating Breastfeeding Friendly Space by Jeff Spitz, Sharon Marshall-Taylor, Natalie Felida an entire page was dedicated to describe the problem that led to the need of The Breastfeeding and Policy Intern: “The Brooklyn Breastfeeding Empowerment Zone (BFEZ) is a community-based initiative that addresses the unique structural and cultural barriers which impact breastfeeding rates in Bedford Stuyvesant and Brownsville. The goal of the Brooklyn Breastfeeding Empowerment Zone is to develop a sustainable, replicable, community-based model in North/Central Brooklyn where breastfeeding is the norm and is seen as the default choice for families”. It does so by promoting and empowering community
Pregnancy and birth for the modern Ojibwe woman differs very little from current American practices. Both AN and her brother were born in a hospital, their mother received prenatal care, and both were formula fed. When asked about breastfeeding views patient was unsure if she would want to breastfeed when she has children as her mother didn’t and she feels that it would be very embarrassing to breastfeed in public. AN states that Ojibwe women are very modest and do not feel comfortable being exposed in public no do they feel it is appropriate.
Breastfeeding isn 't always easy no matter how natural it is. Add job stress to the fears you may already have about not being able to supply enough milk for your baby, and you may be concerned about the prospects of being able to do both. You may be glad to know that millions of women have become breastfeeding moms and held down their regular job.
When baby is born and a woman enters motherhood, her maternal instincts come naturally, either right away or over time. The one major problem with that is that becoming a mother comes with somestereotypes and misconseptions to be a perfect one. Stereotypes and misconceptions are both opinions about a group of individuals. Misconceptions, however, are lies made up about a group. Mothers, especially new ones, are pressured so much in their lives, because they have a child to take responsibility for. All of these presumptions may add stress that a new mother is already dealing with from learning how to take care of her baby. Family members and even community members put these mothers to shame by telling them how to do something the “correct”
Breastfeeding is a natural occurrence and I think that because it is a natural process women can do it in public, but I think that they should cover themselves. I know that when I go out to eat or go see a movie that I don’t want to see what a mother is doing to feed her child. Breastfeeding is such an intimate experience between a mother and child that I wouldn’t want anyone in public to see. Breasts should be used for their natural intentions and that’s it, breasts don’t need to be shown all over and people don’t need gawk over something on a woman’s
Breastfeeding in public some would say is “inappropriate” or “ distracting”. In reality all it is a mother feeding her baby to only feed and not purposely show people her breast. Some mothers feel the need to have to cover up with a blanket or go to the bathroom just so she will not have to worry about being looked at and judged. Women who breastfeed in public but will cover up either want to, or are covering up because what they will hear from people. They will hear comments like ,“ a lot of men either say that it should be done behind closed doors or covered up.” Some will use the excuse, “ as a man, it makes me feel bad to see women half naked when I have a girlfriend” ( “Can’t they wait…”). As much as people would believe that breastfeeding in public is “disgusting”, there’s nothing illegal about it. “A new state law established a mother’s right to breastfeed her child wherever
