<b>Costa Rica, Brazil; January 2013</b> Around 50 mothers attended a 'mamaton' in a shopping centre food court, sparked by one woman's run-in with a security guard - she had been asked her to stop breastfeeding her 11-month-old in public, being told she should move to the parents' room. It set off a social media storm, with even the president adding his voice to the support for the women.
