There's an article about it on News.com.au:
'Young mum Rikki Forrest angry at having to express breastmilk in public during Sea and Vines Festival'
(apologies if it's already been posted)

"Ms Forrest took to Facebook to express her anger, which included posting a photo of her using a breast pump behind the water tank.
The post has been shared more than 7,000 times."
I find it ironic that she so badly needed privacy yet was happy to post a photo on FB.

good answer from the winery.
so yes she wasn't allowed access to the toilets but to the portaloo. Which in a festival can be a pretty yucky place.

I think it's complete $hite the way she was treated. How hard is it for people to treat others with dignity and a bit of empathy?
I don't believe for a second that they couldn't have found her a private space to use for 20 minutes or so. They might not "have" to do it but common decency says you would try to help another person out.
*shudder* at the thought of going above and beyond to help out a patron.

Hypothetically, what if someone was openly expressing at a music festival and the staff asked if she preferred to go somewhere private, everyone would be up in arms that shed been "not allowed" to express in public. This whole story is just making me roll my eyes to be honest, some people just want attention.
