Summary
An award-winning and moving film narrated by actress Meryl Streep, which at times is hard to watch and even harder to listen to. It's an up-close and personal look at the practice of female genital mutilation (FGM). An estimated 140 million women and girls have undergone some form of FGM. Its justification is that it is an important initiation, which reinforces virginity, chastity, purity, marriage ability and fidelity. FGM is a harmful and brutal practice—it is associated with long-term physical and psychological morbidity of girls and women who are subjected to it. FGM is not just a cultural norm in parts of the developing world, but is also, sadly, occurring among some practicing communities in the West. Many of the girls travel from their homes in Europe, North America and Australia back to their parents' homeland to undergo the practice
