The Right to Femininity - Female Genital Mutilation in Africa

Das Recht auf Weiblichkeit

135 million girls and women world-wide are suffering from this extreme form of sexual violence, often euphemistically played down as «female circumcision». Female genital mutilation is practiced in 28 African countries, usually under extremely primitive and totally unacceptable hygienic conditions - by using pieces of broken glass, tin lids or rusty, blunt razor blades. The film observes genital mutilation practices in countries like Togo, Nigeria, Sudan and Ethiopia and documents the struggle fought by nongovernmental organisations against this form of  torture.
