Does a woman need a man?
A Malaysian women’s minister has said that a rising trend of unwed mothers taking hormone pills to encourage lactation to breastfeed their adopted children was worrying, reports said on Wednesday.
“Their intentions might be good, but Islam encourages marriages and a woman will benefit much if she gets to serve her husband,” Mastura Badzis, vice president of the Malaysian Islamic Youth Movement, was quoted as saying by the Malay-language Berita Harian daily.
While it prides itself on being progressive, many critics of the government of mainly-Muslim Malaysia say that the country’s Islamic laws - specifically the marriage laws - need to be revamped as many of them infringe on women’s rights.
Proving once again, men are redundant.
