The Arts at the centre of profound societal changes.

The Arts at the centre of profound societal changes.

Fashion, music, literature, films... all have encouraged and sometimes driven big changes.

Coco Chanel introduced the daring act of women wearing trousers in their free time. She also used jersey, a textile at the time only used for men's underwear.

Until then, women's fashion was centred around the restrictive and uncomfortable corset, and frilly, excessive fabrics. 

A practical act of rebellion that spoke of the discomfort that women were not prepared to put up with anymore.

Human Milk is calling for change too. We call for women and their bodies to be understood, invested in and respected, all over the world, all of the time.

Also, let's normalise the words human milk. After all, we're absolutely comfortable referring to cow's milk. Let's get just as comfortable talking about our own milk, tailor-made for tiny humans.
