Women’s Conference Bans Mom From Bringing Her Nursing Newborn

So here’s a riddle for you: if a conference designed to be an inclusive event, complete with its own sign language interpreters, livestreaming for mobility-challenged individuals, and just about every accommodation for every differently-abled person you could think of, also tells a breastfeeding mother that she can’t bring her nursing newborn to the conference panel that she is speaking on, can the organizers really call the event an inclusive, feminist one?Many professional events have no children policies, for good reason, but many events also include expectations for breastfeeding mothers, also for good reason, primarily that babies and boobs don’t really care what your policies have to say -- babies gotta eat and milk makers gotta make milk.
