Finally some good news to write about.
The BBC is reporting that Uganda has now outlawed the brutal practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) - the excruciating practice of removing the clitoris of young women to make them “more suitable for marriage”.
I only became aware of the practice this year after watching a televised documentary, but my wife and I were moved to tears watching the practice take place. I did write about it earlier in the year after subsequently reading more material from elsewhere. There is plenty on the internet about it. I do sincerely hope the last few remaining countries where FGM is practiced take a look at Uganda and follow in their example.
