Half the Sky Movement: Gloria Steinem on the Politics of Maternal Mortality


What worries me about me about the movement
against maternal mortality, you know, which of course, one fully supports, but sometimes
fails to mention the politics of it, the degree to which women are dying because of child
marriage, that fistulas are due to, in large part, to both child marriage and infibulation
and FGM, you know, it’s not just lack of a doctor, it’s politics, it’s the control
of women’s bodies as nothing but the means of production.
