More about FGM

Thank you all for writing in, in support of the campaign to end female genital mutilation in India.  I just want to  say that the idea is not to target one particular community but to raise awareness about a practice that is harmful for women, physically and mentally.

I am posting some links on FGM from around the world which I found interesting. I had posted them at the end of my last blog but they need to highlighted as they offer useful insight into the practice elsewhere in the world. It would be great if you could post links to the issue as well.

Let’s keep the campaign going!
