    I feel very divided on this issue.

    I am abhorred when I hear of the Chinese system of a 1 child family where abortion is preferred and where there are 43 million "missing girls" as they are not a son! is horrendous!!
    It is everyones right to have children but in Somalia every girl born has an average of 8 children in her lifetime! Born into a country where periods of drought are part of the climate cycles.

    Education seems to be the answer but cultural change is slow and we are running out of time.

    there is a campaign running at the moment about little abandoned girls and it makes me so sad. It is unbelievable that gender can influence people in such horrific ways.

    We have 3 girls now…just as well we live in a country where women do not have the kinds of struggles they do in such places. 🙁
