Millions of women risk female genital mutilation

While the origins of FGM are ancient and predate organized religion, there is one thing we know for sure: its purpose is to control female sexuality and lessen a woman’s humanity.

There is a bitter truth in the former British government minister Lynne Featherstone’s comment that: “If people were cutting off half of men’s penises – which is the actual equivalent – this is a practice that wouldn’t have lasted four minutes let alone 4,000 years.”
