    A great talk! one could just stoop over a mirror though…right?

    • LOLOL Right! I’m so happy they are saving so many girls from FGM. What a terrible thing to do to someone. Girls die from it. I was at a conference in Washington and one of the talks was by a woman who had escaped from her country so they wouldn’t be able to cut her up. Her best friend died in her arms from being mutilated. She ran away and was living in France. She was surrounded by lawyers trying to keep her from being deported. They were asking the US for help. These horrific types of violence against women need to be stopped. But societies like dead women, that’s why they treat us the way they do.

      • Heartafire says:

        These horrific acts are unthinkable yet they go on everyday as “just part of life” for these women. I can’t imagine the horror and fear they live with all the time. They have no say in anything, it is a disgrace for the entire world to let it go on!

  2. Down to not being able to eat ice cream. Women are allowed NO PLEASURES AT ALL. Instead they are beaten, raped, tortured, mutilated and killed. There is no safe place for women. And what is being done to stop it. Women banding together to make differences in the lives of a few because men will never stop hurting us. It doesn’t matter if our own men are kind to us, the fact remains that they don’t have to be and if they decided not be be the law is on their side. Men can make that choice and the good men, the kind men, are the men we are expected to be GRATEFUL for because so many women are brutally treated. The good men do not stop the bad men from doing anything.
