Welcome to our April guest bloggers!

I’m pleased to introduce our guest bloggers for this month. First up is Shiha Kaur:

Shiha Kaur comes from a British-Asian background. She worries about the lack of feminists from her community and the social pressures and demands inflicted on young British-Asian women. 5 foot 10” and single, she has excuses to ignore hints from her relatives about suitable lawyers and accountants, who often stop at 5 foot 8”. She enjoys Bollywood dancing, cooking healthy Indian vegetarian food, and starting craft projects which never seem to get finished.

Next, we have a team of guest bloggers from Education For Choice:

Education For Choice is the UK authority on young people and abortion. We’re the only UK organisation dedicated to ensuring all young people can make and act on their own, informed choices about pregnancy and abortion. To that end, Education For Choice:

  • Works directly with young people in schools and other settings
  • Trains the professionals young people trust on how and why to talk to them about pregnancy choices
  • Develops resources for teachers and other professionals addressing the subject of abortion
  • Advocates for young people’s right to accurate, evidence-based information about abortion and good quality pregnancy decision-making support and services

Education For Choice believes young people should have the facts about abortion, whoever they are, whoever they ask, wherever they go.

We at Education For Choice (Barbara, Jennifer, Kate, and Lisa) are excited to be guest posting at the F Word all this month. We’ll be talking about all elements of our work, including what schools really teach about abortion, the truth about “crisis pregnancy centres”, and what the teenagers we work with want you to know.

Welcome! And a big thank you to Amy Clare and Josephine Tsui for blogging in March.
