Malls reject breastfeeding mamas

Exhibition Poster in Laval, Quebec

Here's the story of the day, from Victoria's Times Colonist:

"Mass breastfeeding event moves to theatre after rejection by local malls : Fears of offending shoppers sparks move to SilverCity
More than 200 nursing mothers are expected for a mass latch-on Oct. 11 at the SilverCity theatre after organizers of the Quintessence Breastfeeding Challenge failed to find a mall to accommodate the event."

A controversial poster at the Quebec Museum of Folk Culture in Trois-Rivieres. It wasn't about the giant nipple, but the name of the 2003 exhibition: Quebec All Dressed. It was in English, not French. Photo by Sue Frause.
