Is Marriage Anti-Feminist?

Last month, Nobel Peace Prize laureate and women’s rights activist, Malala Yousafzai’s marriage sparked debate. While many were happy for Malala, many others argued that Malala’s decision to marry is an antithesis to feminism and goes against what she stands for. The question is, is marriage anti-feminist?
