This article really surprised me, but I suppose it shouldn’t:


According to this American research study, people perceive breastfeeding mothers as being less competent than other people. They are less likely to hire someone whom they know happens to be a breastfeeding mother.

What’s more, this bias was equally distributed between men and women – which means that other women are also less likely to hire a breastfeeding mother.

Mental note: don’t mention breastfeeding during job interviews.

Where do you suppose this prejudice spring from?
