A Lovely Lactivist?

Revolutionaries aren't supposed to look like this. People who change the world have chiselled jaws, steely eyes and an elusive air of power revved up by generous servings of conviction. Amy Smith's eyes could not be described as steely. They are sparkly and welcoming, and crinkle when she laughs, which she does a lot. She has soft curves and a perma-tan from a life spent chasing three children outdoors. She's not an Oxbridge graduate but a stay-at-home mum, who worked in marketing before having her first baby at 24. But from her bedroom in Queensland's Sunshine Coast, Smith is quietly working away at spreading a radical message that could change the world for millions of women. Her belief? That it is okay to breastfeed your child.

Alas, when was the last time you read a pleasant write-up about a Lactivist? It should come to you as no surprise that I modified this intro. It's about an anti-Lactivist :(
