Milk Factory takes us behind the scenes in a lactation suite at U.S. House of Representatives, created by Nancy Pelosi in 2007, where women from different parties connect, a rare opportunity in an era of intense divisiveness when cooperation is key to legislation benefiting families. The United States remains the only high-income country in the world that does not offer paid family leave, causing many people to return to work soon after giving birth and contributing to the pervasiveness of pumping in the workplace. One of the filming dates coincided with congress adopting the Federal Employee Paid Leave Act, but more work needs to be done. Studies show women who breastfeed suffer more earnings losses, and the longer people breastfeed, the more likely they are to be non-employed or to work fewer hours. The film highlights the growth of lactation rooms, addressing systemic issues affecting women, particularly women of color and working parents. “Milk Factory” resonates as a portrait of advocacy amid divisiveness, emphasizing the importance of cooperation for legislative change that benefits families.
