A breastfeeding Mom who works with University of Cape Town, in South Africa, has reportedly dragged her colleague to court, for secretly filming her while she breastfed her baby.
The sued man reportedly committed the said offence by setting up a live link in a private room at the institution on June 13. The lady who was disgusted with this, said she can not understand how providing food for her baby was “sexualised in such a cowardly way.”
The University has however, suspended the man, as Western Cape police have also confirmed that a case of crimen injuria — the intentional harming of someone’s dignity — is being investigated against the 38-year old university employee.
According South Africa’s local media, the victim had been in what she thought was a “safe, locked space” expressing milk, when she noticed that she was being filmed.
“I’m disgusted that we live in a world where mothers, no matter how they choose to feed their children, are victimised for being vulnerable.”
