Last week, Argentinian MP Victoria Donda Perez, 37, breastfed her eight-month-old daughter during a parliamentary session.
Donda Perez, a human rights activist and lawyer, was the youngest woman ever to become a member of the Argentine National Congress, when she was elected in 2007.
Many praised Donda for her actions.
Some argued that women should try to emulate her.
And some pointed out that Donda enjoyed a special privilege by being able to feed her child in the workplace.
Donda is the first known child of disappeared political prisoners to become a legislator.
At the age of 26, she learned that her supposed father was a torturer in Argentina and that her true parents were political prisoners.
She was placed in the awful position of having to take a DNA test to confirm her parents' identity – her decision to do meant the man she had thought to be her father all her life was placed on trial for kidnapping. He supported her in the decision to take the test.
Her parents remain missing to this day.
In this video the Progresistas en CABA politician describes how she has faced sexism in the course of her political career.
