  1. Female genital mutilation. I was at a conference in D.C. A woman had escaped from her country after her best friend died in her arms after she was mutilated by this horrible practice. Girls die from being cut with dirty glass shards. The men leave the village so they DON’T HAVE TO LISTEN TO THEIR SCREAMS. She was in France, where lawyers were working frantically to get her political immunity, or to find a country where she could flee to if they failed. Nightmare.
