“A great step for human rights”

by

From Wit & Fancy Magazine:

FGM is obviously a gender-targeted cruelty. Because most of the women who have to suffer through it are actually children, it makes the act that much worse. I do not understand how women can subject their children to this if they too once had it done to them. That being said, it’s truly great news that Kurdistan has passed the bill that criminalizes the act. It’s a great step for human rights, and one which I hope many will follow. Kurdistan has set an example that can lead to others banning FGM as well.
