IMPACT OF FGM ON IMMIGRANT WOMEN Name Institution Date Introduction Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C) is a practice that is still being carried in various parts of the world today. The practice draws most of its origin from traditional communities that believe that by circumcising a woman she is purified/cleansed. Furthermore the practice is used traditionally as a way to initiate women into the customs of the community just as in the case of male circumcisions (Eisler 2013). Most African and Middle East countries still condone this practice since the areas are inhabited by aboriginal people with very strong beliefs on the relevance of the practice. The practice is however uncommon in developed countries since these countries have stricter laws prohibiting/discouraging FGM. However in countries such as the USA there are various cases of FGM due to the high number of immigrants in the country (Eisler 2013). According to a W. S. ... & Genco R. J. (2015).
