A sixty-three year old woman is being described as selfish for wanting to have a child. But she’s not the only one.
An ICM poll published last week found over fifty percent of young women felt it was more important to enjoy themselves than have children. They were promptly labelled ‘selfish’ for preferring fabulous shoes to dirty nappies, and those who led the women’s movement in the 1970s said they found the situation ‘terribly sad’.
So are these twenty-something women sad or are they free?
We ask the leading writer and feminist Rosie Boycott, journalist and Mother of three Emma Jones and twenty-five year old columnist Laura Topham.
