Planting of Girls (The)
« Although Female Genital Mutilation (FGM, the removal of the clitoris and often part or whole of the labia minora to ensure a woman’s premarital and extra-marital chastity) is forbidden by law in Egypt and banned in public and private hospitals and clinics, official statistics show that nearly 96% of women in Egypt are still circumcised. This controversial-yet-level-headed documentary examines why FGM is practiced, the reactions to it and its medical, historical, cultural and sexual significance – all from women’s perspectives and in women’s voices. » – Arab Films (read more at www.egyptiancastle.com/community/justice/circumcision/circumcision01.htm)
