Not So Wordless Wednesday--Mama's Milk and Bodily Integrity

Last week, March 28- April 2, was Genital Integrity Awareness Week. On March 30, 1997, female circumcision was made illegal in the United States. Unfortunately, almost a decade and a half later, American boys are still not protected from genital cutting, despite this gender inequality being unconstitutional under the 14th Amendment. I spent the week sewing 7 sets of my Mama's Milk Cartons and Activism Cookies. These sets are going to be at the Peaceful Parenting booth at the Child & Baby Expo of Iowa on April 9th. I hope these toys will raise a bit of awareness for expo goers and others. I feel very strongly that everyone should have a right to their whole, intact body from birth.
