Huge admiration for Leyla Hussein

I am quite interested in the mens' point of view.

A really interesting and informative piece of television and my heart went out to all those amazing women who are speaking out and challenging their own communities.

Just signed and shared the petition, up to 29,000 now which is good, but nowhere near enough.

I've only just seen this thread. I wish I could sign the petition but I'm not a UK resident or tax payer. I'm sure this is the case for many MN members.

Have just watched 'The Cruel Cut' & I was horrified(even though I was aware of FGM)& thought I'll see what the MNers have to say about it.

Words fail me,the shit on here that reaches over 500 posts,but this is either being ignored or people are not aware of it.Have signed the petition.
Well done Layla (that's my dd's name,I hope she grows up to be half as strong a woman as you!!)

Good point Chicken I've noticed that, it's the same in RL. Very few people actually want to think about the horrible things that go on in this world, because with that knowledge comes a sense that you ought to be doing something about it.
