This time I would like to talk about violence against women.
Women are now considered equal to men, but achieving this wasn't easy; it took a lot of times and many battles.
Unfortunately they are not considered equal everywhere on Earth.
One of the most barbaric practice people do on a woman body is the genital cutting.
Example of genital cutting is the infibulation, a surgical practice performed without anesthetic on young girls before the onset of puberty to ensure chastity, which consist in the surgical closure of outer lips of the vulva leaving only a small hole for urine and menstrual blood.
Sometimes this practice is performed at the same time with the removal of clitoris and the removal of inner lips of the vulva.
dangerous are the results of this practice: Urinary incontinence, organ damage and obstetric fistula (development of a hole between vagina and rectum). danger cames also from poor hygiene conditions during the surgery.
Performed often for cultural/religion reasons in third world's countries, This practice have been condemned by ONU (or UNO) and other cultures as barbaric and cruel.
Many countries banned it with laws, giving heavy punishment such as hard labor for life or, if the girl dies, death sentence.
Unfortunately, although the laws banish it, it still being performed In an illegal way, and girls continue to suffer.
I hope this cruel practice will stop in the future and all this girls could live their own life deciding for themselves what is better for them.
