The article discusses the proposed equality bill in Great Britain that will give women limited legal right to breastfeed in public. According to the author, pressure to formalize the right is growing. Existing obligations of employers include providing breastfeeding mothers with a place to rest, adequate breaks, and flexible working hours. Statutory provisions of the bill could set legal minimums for employers to accommodate breastfeeding at work.
