Married Women Circumcised with Husbands' Consent - Ugandan NGO

Faced with a new law against female genital mutilation, traditionalists have now shifted to circumcising married women with the consent of their husbands, an NGO says. Statistics from the Sebei sub-region suggest that only 24% of girls aged 10 to 14 have experienced some form of genital mutilation - while 76% of women between 25 and 35 have undergone the procedure.
