UN Committee Calls for Ban on Female Circumcision

UN Committee Calls for Ban on Female Circumcision

Female genital mutilation, a longstanding practice in a myriad of cultures across the world and a sensitive topic pertinent to Girls Studies, is finally on the road to being banned, at least "legally.". Although this will not be implemented overnight it is about time that an initiative is taken to eliminate this heinous act and educate individuals in ALL communities, countries, and cultures why girls' rights to their bodies are human rights and choices they should be able to make for themselves.
