Allow ads for breastfeeding products on Instagram

0 have signed. Let’s get to 25,000!


In 2015 Instagram updated their community guidelines to specifically state that breastfeeding photos are allowed, bringing it in line with Facebook's policy.

And because of the countless emails, DM's, comments from hundreds of breastfeeding mothers who are just as furious as we are about Instagram and Facebook denying our ads, categorizing our breastfeeding images as "nudity and sexual content, we started this petition. Because no matter how many times we appeal, Facebook replies with "we're sorry for the inconvenience but our say on this matter remains unchanged".

If you've ever breastfed, are currently breastfeeding, plan to breastfeed or are just flat out outraged by the fact that lingerie and swimsuit ads (showing far more bare skin) are allowed in Facebook ads policies, but images of breastfeeding mothers showing her bare shoulder is NOT, we urge you to sign this petition. 

Because it's not just about these ads, it's about every single breastfeeding mother out there. It's about the entire #normalizebreastfeeding movement. It's about beginning to heal society's shame and stigma about the beautiful natural act of breastfeeding. 

It starts here, with us, right now! Let's change the world together. #PowerInNumbers

 

Sure, you will advertise content where women are displayed as sexual beings, but if we try to advertise how women are deeper, truer, have more fiber and self-worth as mothers... then we're out of control and offensive. 

We ask the following:

1) Extract breastfeeding pictures/information/websites from the "nudity and sexual content" category. It simply doesn't belong there.

2) Allow ads that feature images of breastfeeding mothers. Including main images, the landing page URL, products, etc.  And the right to advertise products for breastfeeding mothers as we would any other product or service.
