Dear Alyne

Dear Alyne:

This is a very important video with people directly involved in genital mutilation. Please note there are no graphic scenes but there are testimonies from women who have had this done to them as girls. We need to stand together with females all over the world when men use religion and false science to control women!!! Something this video does not say that I feel I should is that A WOMAN’S WORTH DOES NOT LIE IN HER VAGINA!!! Even if it WERE true that a woman would sleep around, that’s her prerogative. I’m sure the very same men who are doing this to women are sleeping with whomever they please! Why?!?!
