I participated in a Pan African Leadership event where I was exposed to this discussion through Somali women that are fighting to stop this practice in their country.  The grusome nature of this practice left me in tears - that girls as young as 5 are mutilated in this way stated as cultural reasons is absurd as it directly relates to gender imbalances - the Ko'ran has no reference to this practice.

I've signed this petition in the hope that it will stop the practice.

this list has been dead since there was a sort of attack by biased feminists who were protesting the list's leadership by a man

you can read through the posts and see what transpired

what I learned from research is that FGM is not male-terrorism, as the feminists say, but family capital were girls are treated as assets, or "chattel," a word derived from "capital."

the guilty in FGM, the "cutters," are nearly always women.
