A series of films portraying issues, institutions and individuals Female Circumcision
It has been called ' The last violation of human rights', and the delicacy of the subject has ensured its burial in embarrassed silence. Girls are excised young - in the Sudan as young as five, in Ethiopia between the ages of one and two. They are excised for religious and hygiene reasons, to prevent rape, and to curtail a sexual appetite which is assumed to be ungovernable. This documentary is set in modern Khartoum, where circumcision is banned by law, but practised by midwives. The hospitals bear witness to the terrible toll of misery inflicted on many women in sexual intercourse and in childbearing. But the assumption that excision is purely an African matter is false. There is now clear evidence that it takes place in private London clinics under the direction of Harley Street doctors.
