In this issue of Footsteps, we look at a number of health issues concerning women, that are not often discussed openly. Though the issues are all directly to do with women’s health we trust they will also be of interest to our male readers, as these are all issues which men need to understand, care about and, in some cases, to act upon. Some, like female excision, raise important issues of social change in beliefs and custom.
Women are often regarded as second class citizens, taught to feel ashamed of their bodies and normal needs and functions. Yet in God’s eyes we are all of equal value and concern.
