Thank you to bringing this to our attension Lauren, I submitted a comment to the story and hope that's ok with you and I've sent a letter to The Hague in their own Language and just hope that it'll have an impact on them. It was hard though as I'm thinking in English and writing in Dutch! Not easy believe me! And thank you to Cheree for bringing this to my attention as I haven't had time to go into Care2. If you're also in facebook just click on the F for facebook, it might take a bit longer but I just copy the E-Mail addresses and do it the hard way. But I do know that even in facebook if you press on Visit site you get the complete story. I've done it that way and it works so at least some of your friends in facebook get the chance to comment IF they go into YOUR profile or causes. Unfortunately mine don't do it very often and I wish there was a way to send the story to your friends like you do with the facebook causes! That's the only thing I hate about facebook and love about Care2 and I'm still learning! Good luck with your story!

It's horrific - no child should have this hideous and unnecessary procedure inflicted on them.
I sent the emails - this one was returned immediately -

Good grief. Sent emails. Wish people were all better than to do this. Sheesh. Real men never need to control women. Thanks Lauren. It's hard to read about but I'm happy to try to help.

Agree, "real men" do not have to control or abuse women. They especially should not control & abuse children. This is the worst form of life on earth, those who abuse those weaker than they are & those who abuse the ones in their "care".

I was reading that some western anthropologists are saying that we (outsiders) should not interfere in cultural traditions, including FGM. WTF?! This is the most vile form of child abuse. These girls and women are asking for help from whomever will listen. They do not want to be violated and have there bodies damaged and be robbed of their sexuality.
Lucy Mashua is my friend and I feel so deeply for what she has been through. FGM is an act of violence, an act of rape against a child. How can we sit and do nothing to help if there is some way we can???
