Saliha Bava‘s insight:
We need to change medical practices that promote subjugation of women’s sexuality.Rini Fernandes states “In this strongly patriarchal societal fabric it is hard for an unmarried young woman to be honest and vocal about her pre-marital sexual activity. Surprisingly enough even the female doctors in the medical fraternity speak the patriarchal language of controlling women’s sexuality by ways of instilling guilt and shame when their real job is to only treat the medical condition that they have been trained at.”She states the change we need. “To start with, we really need gender sensitizing education imparted within the medical curriculum where medical students are taught to deconstruct their prejudices against any gender.”
