UNCUT: The War Against Female Genital Mutilation
February 05, 2016
An ordinary room, or a dark hut in a rural village. A razor blade bought at a market will suffice, or a sharp knife, or simply a shard of broken glass. Sometimes needle and thread, or the thorns from a wild-growing bush. The women of the family restrain the little girl while a circumciser is paid to inflict in her a pain so intense that it will never be forgotten.
For at least 200 million women around the world, the passage from infancy to adulthood is marked by the blood of female genital mutilation (FGM).
