Leah Hawker brings together 101 women to tell their stories about the realities of breastfeeding, a subject often hidden from the public eye. They explore personal truths, myths and attitudes towards the practice, inevitably raising topical questions about how women feel about themselves, how they are seen by others and how they are marketed to. Portraits of every woman standing tall, feeding her child in public, accompany the candid accounts. The title of the project is Breastfeeding 101and even though it is not intended as a manual, it may serve as one.
