Breastfeeding to be included in anti discrimination legislation?

Changes to the federal Sex Discrimination Act are imminent. A Bill is before the Commonwealth Parliament now that seeks to establish breastfeeding as a specific ground of both direct and indirect discrimination. It has passed the House of Reps and will probably be debated in the Senate on Monday. It pretty much has bipartisan support, so hopefully it will pass next week.

Amazing.
