This is, in web terms, old news, but I just heard this morning about the current (maddening) dispute between Harvard medical student Sophie Currier and the National Board of Medical Examiners, who rejected her request for additional break time during the 9-hour licensing exam in order to pump breast milk for her 4-month-old daughter (see Globe 9/21, NYT 9/10). Clearly, the board doesn’t include members who have suffered engorgement, leaking breasts, or the trying ritual of pumping, and they should be embarrassed by this outright lack of practical and physiological consideration for modern working mothers.
