#WBW15 “Let’s Make It Work” Tools

World Breastfeeding Week is always August 1-7.

August is National Breastfeeding Month.

WABA (World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action) is the sponsor of the World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) campaign. The 2015 theme is “Let’s Make It Work”, focusing on the employed mother’s rights to lactation accommodations in the workplace.MMMMAW_2

The WBW 2015 campaign aims to empower and support ALL women, working in both the formal and informal sectors, to adequately combine work with child-rearing, particularly breastfeeding. WABA defines work in its broadest form from paid employment, self-employment, seasonal and contract work to unpaid home and care work.
