'Embarrassed', Jake Dypka x Hollie McNish

Great new video directed by Jake Dypka, featuring spoken word artist Hollie McNish on mothers' struggle to tackle contradictory reactions to breastfeeding in public. Visuals and text together create a powerful end result!

    Great! Why do you think there's such a stigma around breastfeeding? I don't ever remember it being as big of a deal as it it today.

      That is a very interesting question! I agree with you: breastfeeding is natural, and it is surprising to see the unease that a lot of people may feel towards it in year 2016. I think Hollie McNish accurately explains this contradiction between the general acceptance of sexualised nudity and the discomfort of the motherly act of breastfeeding. It is odd that there is such a stigma around breastfeeding, and I think that it is most likely due to the constant exposure of female nudity through various media, and the ongoing rarity of public breastfeeding. I hope voices, like hers, are increasingly heard and I think they can change people's perception on this issue, and ultimately empower women to feel comfortable to nurture their child in any situation!

        I agree! It's very hypocritical of society. For example, Kylie Jenner who is not even in her twenties yet, posed topless and the media has been covering it incessantly. Why is that ok yet breastfeeding stigmatized? I don't think women should be whipping their breasts out in a public place because that could make someone uncomfortable but breastfeeding with a cover on should be socially acceptable.
