Thank you, thank you! You've just given me words to explain why I don't
call myself a feminist. I associate feminism with people making my
choices for me. If you want to stay home and look after kids instead of
going out to a job, you're unliberated; if you want to wear a headscarf
in church you're oppressed; if you want to marry a man you're cheating
your sisters. That's the brand of feminism I was brought up on, and I
don't want any of it.
