CGBI: Breastfeeding and Feminism International Conference

Paige Hall Smith presents the late Dr. Labbok with the inaugural Miriam H Labbok Award for Excellence in 2016

Please visit the official Breastfeeding and Feminism International Conference website for registration and abstract submission information.

The symposium is a transdisciplinary effort to address feminist perspectives and to emphasize the impact that gendered power dynamics and structured social stratification might offer for public health policies, priorities and approaches that are related to breastfeeding. To this end, a series of public health constructs currently engaged by breastfeeding programs and policies will provide a framework for discussion.

The Breastfeeding and Feminism Conference is designed to bring together scholars, advocates, practitioners and policymakers interested in

  • Breastfeeding
  • Women’s rights at home and  at work
  • Reproductive health, rights and justice
  • Family planning and child health
  • Health maintenance
  • Systems and services
