Our thanks to Frank for this piece in The Guardian. An extract:
Zeinab Ali, head of education in Malak’s home state of El Gezira, said clubs aim to empower girls “to have strong opinions in front of their mothers and grandmothers”, who usually make the decisions to have their daughters and granddaughters cut.
This is a departure from the usual Guardian line that men are responsible for FGM.
Three years ago we posted a link to a video by 5hadowfax, WHO/UNAIDS are mutilating the genitals of 20 million Sub-Saharan males (video, 11:24). There are links to four pieces on MGM by William Collins in the video description box.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1.00 – or even better, £1.00 or more, monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
