In 2010 Licia Ronzulli, Italian MEP took her baby Vittoria to a vote in the European Parliament, keeping her carefully cradled in a sling and occasionally kissing her forehead. She was taking advantage of relatively relaxed rules that allow women to take their babies to work. Ronzulli brought Vittoria not as a political gesture but as a maternal one because she was still breastfeeding. She recognized that most women do not have this opportunity and that “we should do something…about this."
