Discussion of the Week:

FEMALE MUTILATION: TRAGEDY OR TRADITION

 

I at awe that today we as women as still viewed in many countries as second class or even below that. Many women in third world countries are faced with the fear of being cut. They are being mutilated to preserve their virginity or so they are told. This procedure is dreadfully painful and is not done under any type of sanitation. Then the young women are sewn together to preserve them.  Here are a few links to give you first hand information on the subject.  http://www.jamati.com/online/style/waris-dirie-a-true-desert-flower/?link=related

Also keep in mind that many immigrants here in the Americas are mutilating their daughters for the same reasons, yes here in America. Many well known women have began to raise the awareness in hopes of making this tradition a thing of past.

 

Now that being said…Is Female Mutilation a Tragedy or Is it just a tradition, like male circumcision? How can we ensure that young girls are protected? Do we have the right to intervene with a countries traditions?

There are no right or wrong answers..I would love your comments..Talk2Me..
