…And Canada is the best. I wholeheartedly agree that Canada is a great place to be a woman, however, I’d like to ensure before applauding our first place standing that they don’t include unfettered access to abortion as a positive.
No disagreement on India being the worst. NONE whatsoever. I am currently trying to read Aruna Papp’s Unworthy Creature and I can only do so in short stints, and not before bed because it is so very, very disturbing and hard to read. (It is the true story of what Aruna Papp endured in India before coming to Canada. One short section includes severe maternal depression, including abuse of a newborn baby by Aruna’s mother, reference to a sex selection abortion or two by Aruna’s mother, hunger and cold due to neglect for Aruna and her siblings, tears over the birth of a baby sister, because nothing could be worse than a baby girl being born, the near fatal beating of Aruna by her own father for something insignificant that she didn’t actually do, “Christian” missionaries being complicit in said near fatal beating and much, much worse, if you can believe it. Welcome to India!)by
