Many Voices - Many Choices

Feminism begins with women sharing their experiences.

Amy I have an appointment for 8:00am tomorrow. i'm so scared! Lee-Ann I was 22... I am sure it was the right choice.
Veronica I too, have had to make that tough decision 3 times in my life. Cristine I took four pregnancy tests, insisting that they must be wrong.
