for your note to FEMINIST.COM--and,
unfortunately, there are many
countries in which women undergo
female genital mutilation, also
known as circumcision. For instance,
Egypt, Mali, Ghana, Nigeria--and
many other West African countries.
It has also happened in the
United States and in Europe.
There is a great group--Equality
NOW, which does a lot of
work on this issue. We also
have links on FGM in our Violence
Against Women section for
more information and resources.
I hope that helps
