Stop Calling Women Selfish For Choosing Birth Control

  • Katie Featherstone

    I am not Muslim, but I came to your site as I am interested in what feminism looks like from your point of view. It is amazing and so frustrating how everyone across all walks of life and communities thinks that it is normal to tell a woman what to do with her own body. We cannot even persuade our men to visit the doctor when there is an obvious health problem (in my world anyway), but somehow women can be advised on their diet, appearance and reproductive health as a matter of course from people with no qualifications what so ever.
