  • Remembering Nawal El Saadawi

    https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/21/o...dawi-dead.html

    Saadawi was an Egyptian feminist, author, and physician who advocated for bodily autonomy. All of the obituaries I've found so far focus exclusively on her work to eradicate FGM-- which was personally important to her for obvious reasons-- but I think she should be celebrated for being morally consistent and declaring that bodily autonomy is not a gendered issue:

    Unfortunately, I'm not really familiar with her work beyond her Wikipedia article, so maybe I'm not the best person to write about her, but I really think we should do more to champion those who acknowledge that all children, regardless of sex, deserve genital integrity and self-determination.
