Is there actually a remarkable amount of women who can-not produce enough breastmilk or that of good enough quality? Or,is that a belief that hides interferences to breastfeeding and com-mercial interests, that are masked under the myth of scarcity andquality of human breast milk? Can we consider breastfeeding as anact of food sovereignty? This article explores how the scarcity of hu-man breast milk is linked to patriarchal and capitalist practices thatinhibit it, instead of being due to a biological deficiency of women orto the scarcity of a natural resource.
