While we are at it, we should stop male genital mutilation also. All that it takes to keep women safe is for men to use a wash clothe on their penis.

The education of our world female population is a key component of success. Apparently, the women of certain areas are in agreement of such traditions, not really understanding the vital health issues or the psychological implications. This is such a human tragedy!!!

Thanks a lot, Rose, for putting this petition up - noted and singed.

I strongly object though to the term "Female Genital Cutting" - this is in all it's form (except clitoris pricking) MUTILATION of the worst kind. Never allow this to be called "cutting" as some so-called politically correct people suddenly would want to have it. NEVER!

Thanks Rose for posting, but I don't have much hope that this will ever end - it is tradition in certain tribes in our Country and our Prez Zuma believes in tradition.

Noted and signed I have signed on this subject before and Rose it may be illegal in your country, but the one that I signed before had to do with this practice being preformed within the US.

Signed even though I very much doubt a man who raped an HIV positive woman and took a shower - maybe if he knew that FGM is the same as castration is to men, without having testicles removed. Of course it is rare for men, but for women it is the norm in some places, is truly terrible.
