Better Off Without Fathers

[Letter from Sonia, in “The F Word, Contempory UK Feminism”] Fathers are more likely to abuse their children than mothers. ‘Having a male role model’ could mean having to watch a man beat up your mother. When parents divorce, fathers are more likely to bugger off and make little effort to see their children again. It baffles me that social conservatives are so much more up in arms about women choosing to have a much desired child, who will be deeply loved, than about these three things.
