The Post Worth Celebrating. (India).10:30:00 AM
As I may have mentioned earlier (maybe not) I am studying under the branch of Women's Studies but I necessarily had to narrow it down, for obvious reasons. So my topic is this: Women's health decisions in correlation with age, urban vs. rural location, and education. I realize that this may not sound very exotic or enticing but there is so much more to it than a title can capture. And that is perfect. Abortion in India is completely free and legal, and even being endorsed by the government to some extent because of their over-population fears. Many of the women, regardless of their social standing or education, have had abortions. Many of them are not performed in hospitals but rather by midwifes. Additionally, I want to take a good look at the aids problem in India, prostitution is also legal and aids-education is minimal. I will be looking at basic questions such as, why do women go to the doctor? Assuming it will be different than the reasoning we might think to provide. I want to look at the quality of hospitals, child-bearing methods, homeopathic treatments and many, many other aspects of women's health. The idea is perfect for me, it just fits. Above all I just feel relieved, grateful, excited, anxious for time to pass, loved, free, did I mention grateful? Today, I am a queen.
