YOU HAVE most likely heard of MILFS. Now meet the SMILFS (that’s single mothers, if you were wondering).

0 Have your say When Benazir Bhutto – then prime minister of Pakistan – announced she was pregnant with her second child in 1990, the opposition leader, Syeda Abida Hussain, accused her of being “greedy”. “It is clear she wants it all – motherhood, domesticity, glamour. She is even seeking more power than she has,” she said. During the last trimester of her first pregnancy two years earlier, Bhutto, then opposition leader, had been a constant on the campaign trail as the country geared up for the first open election in more than a decade.
