Embarrassed: Poem by Hollie McNish

Why is titillation accepted and sustenance rejected? Hollie McNish takes us on a journey of exploration around the hypocrisy of a society that condemns women to breastfeed, hidden away in toilet cubicles, when women’s bodies are showcased for commercial gain, wherever we look.

This poem is taken from the book Nobody Told Me: a journey from pregnancy to pre-school in poetry and prose: [link to purchase book]

The video was directed by Jake Dypka with Indy 8 for Channel 4 Random Acts with help from hundreds up people via a KickStarter campaign.
