A big question to my followers !
- What do you think, should I continue with my blog and essays about human rights issues?
…”The F Word”
Yes, I know you know which word I am talking about,
Are you getting nervous…
Here, let me state it again, ” Feminism”
Your looking pretty scared now…
I speculate what comes to mind is lesbianism, girls that don’t shave, women that hate men and want to dominate, that,or you’re really clueless to the mysterious world of feminism.
For the first time, the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA) explicitly described family planning as a “universal human right.” In its annual report, the organization said that improved access to contraception and other methods of family planning could greatly improve the lives of women around the world:
“Family planning has a positive multiplier effect on development,” Dr.
Babatunde Osotimehin, executive director of the fund, said in a written statement. “Not only does the ability for a couple to choose
when and how many children to have help lift nations out of poverty, but it is also one of the most effective means of empowering women. Women who use contraception are generally healthier,
better educated, more empowered in their households and communities and more economically productive. Women’s increased labor-force participation boosts nations’ economies.”
The report effectively declares that legal, cultural and financial barriers to accessing contraception and other family planning measures are an infringement of women’s rights.
Although the report is non-binding and does not itself affect international law, the UNFPA noted that spending an additional $4.1 billion on family planning funding could save $11.3 billion each year on health care for new mothers and infants in poor countries.

A hijab doesn’t define a muslimah for who she is, You do not have the right to judge her as your sister. Remember you cannot put a scarf over your heart, instead of judging her, pray for her and say “insh’allah one day, ukhti”
