International Women’s Day Equality for women is progress for all

In conjunction with International Women’s Day (IWD) which falls on 8th March, WABA invites you to take this time to reflect on the social changes necessary to ensure full economic, political and social equality for all women – especially breastfeeding mothers who face numerous challenges in their quest to provide the best for their children and families.

WABA calls upon individuals and communities to recognise the value of breastfeeding to women, children, families and communities. Full equality for breastfeeding mothers would in fact contribute toward progress for all.
