American model breastfeeds her baby while walking down the ramp

American model Mara Martin, who was finalised among the 16 finalists in magazine Sports Illustrated’s fashion show, did a deed that started a debate on social media. The model was given a chance to walk down the ramp breastfeeding her five-month-old daughter.

Picking up her daughter in her arms she walked down the ramp confidently wearing a gold bikini at the W South Beach hotel. The magazine’s official site posted many pictures and a video of her walk on it’s Instagram page.

Martin’s walk created a lot of buzz on social media with a lot of differing opinions about this issue with some praising her for this deed while some say that it was not an act of empowerment.

While there were other people who were not at all impressed with the move:

In June 2018, Karina Gould, Canadian MP made headlines when she breastfed her three-month-old son while sitting in the House of Commons. After her video got public, she posted ‘No shame in breastfeeding! Baby’s gotta eat & I had votes’

In a similar incident, Senator Larissa Waters became the first woman in Australian Parliament to breastfeed her baby while giving a speech in the parliament.
