WTOP covers VA’s new breastfeeding law and interviews Rebecca Geller

Virginia was one of only three states in the nation where women haven’t had the right to breast-feed their children in public until now. The two remaining states are Idaho and South Dakota.

Governor Terry McAuliffe signed the bills Monday afternoon.

“It’s great that Virginia is catching up to the rest of the country and hopefully can be a leader on this issue,” says Rebecca Geller, a Fairfax mother of three and a lawyer who helped push for the change.
