    Sudan criminalises female genital mutilation (FGM)

    Sudan criminalises female genital mutilation (FGM)-_105476832_1a-gettyimages-479424530-jpg
    There has been a global trend towards banning FGM

    Sudan has criminalised carrying out female genital mutilation (FGM), making it punishable by three years in jail.


    Some 87% of Sudanese women aged between 14 and 49 have undergone some form of FGM, according to the UN.

    In Sudan it is common for women to get the inner and outer labia, and usually the clitoris, removed.

    FGM can result in urinary tract infections, uterine infections, kidney infections, cysts, reproductive issues and pain during sex.



    Girls get cut because of a widespread cultural belief that it is essential for girls' reputations and future marriage prospects.

    Barbaric practice ... happy to (hopefully) see the end of this.

    ...The Sudanese government is acting to reduce international opprobrium...not necessarily to stop this barbaric and deeply-ingrained cultural practice...similar laws passed in other Muslim countries have done little to protect girls from their families...

    Yet we go to those Muslim countries for our own personal benefit.

    Shame on us.

    And now he lives in a country with an oppressive military-style dictatorship.

    He was also born and brought up in a third country with a right-wing dictatorship and a hideous human rights record.

    He can’t live without that shit.

    I'm hiring a Sudanese feller soon. Top quality technician but I'll make sure he hasn't lobbed off the wife's clit before I approve it.
