For this event, nearly 35,000 people in more than 30 countries gathered in designated public areas to nurse their babies or just show their support. And while all the photos are different, the common thread is that they all believe in a mom's right to breastfeed wherever she wants!

It's a sad fact that some moms today still get harassed for doing something as natural as feeding their kid. But this event shows moms are refusing to hide. Check out some of the inspiring images of this event from around the world.
