One of my students at a summer course I was teaching at Seattle University on
global health analyzed reports about health issues in the media over the last
few weeks and there was one video segment on the New York Times website where
the issues of breastpumping at work were discussed by Jodi Kantor. You have to
watch an ad first but the actual video is quite revealing. No comparisons with
other countries of course (see
http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/globalworkingfamilies/images/report.pdf for that)
The URL for the video is
and the accompanying article useful as well.
Do look at the 143 comments posted there which describe a variety of viewpoints typical of those who read this paper, or see it on the web, that include some coments about what happens in other countries.
