It Takes a Village: The Role of the Greater Community in Inspiring and Empowering Women to Breastfeed

It Takes a ViIlage reflects the ancient idea that raising healthy, wise children is a social good. Our villages can support women by helping them integrate mothering with employment, increasing access to human milk, improving media support, and reducing inequities in care. It Takes a Village represents the best of recent scholarship in breastfeeding, with 40 papers from the 2013 Breastfeeding and Feminism conference. Together, they form a compelling and readable volume showing where breastfeeding advocates have been and where they need to go next.
