Every year more than one million women are forced to choose between breastfeeding their children and keeping their jobs. That number will continue to grow as more women enter the paid workforce and as more women learn about the health benefits of breastfeeding. Yet, remarkably little legal literature has been published about breastfeeding and employment. The area is both under-theorized and under-analyzed. Indeed, despite court decisions that have uniformly left breastfeeding women without legal protection, the courts' decisions have gone nearly uncriticized and mostly unnoticed. This Article aspires to change that phenomenon.
