The Paraiso x SI Swimsuit show on Sunday marked itself as one of the most iconic ramp shows of our times and for good reason! Model Mara Martin walked the ramp for the Sports Illustrated show while breastfeeding her infant daughter. Yes, you heard it right!

We still live in a world where natural processes that every woman goes through are never talked about in open. Because God forbid, someone should hear! Be it periods or breastfeeding, it’s always a hush-hush. Although I will never get why. This bold and effortless walk by Martin was surely a step towards fighting these taboos. Let’s not forget to appreciate Sports Illustrated to facilitate this and clearly showing a middle finger to the haters.

Have a look at her walk and how she totally OWNED IT:

The ramp walk was widely appreciated by people around the world on social media. Taken aback by all the support, Mara said, “I can’t believe I am waking up to headlines with me and my daughter in them for doing something I do every day. It is truly so humbling and unreal to say the least. I’m so grateful to be able to share this message and hopefully normalize breastfeeding and also show others that women can do it all!”

Here’s how Twitter said KUDOS to this bold act:

1. She symbolized women all over.

2. Empowered women!

3. It is normal!

4. It was refreshing for some!

5. If you’re gonna hate this, it’s a statement on your character, not hers!

6. Goooo women!

7. Some people can think negative for everything.

8. Because it is completely normal!

9. For all the people who said she’s “using” her baby, logic much?

10. Not everything is for attention.

There are always gonna be people who will point out the pessimistic aspects of this but could we just look at the brighter side? I hope women all over feel more confident about what they’re going through and how it is nothing to shy away from!

Thank you Mara Martin for this, women everywhere love you!
