Dr Zarifa, good afternoon.
I lead the only political party in the English-speaking world campaigning for the human rights of women and girls, and our #1 campaigning issue is female circumcision, Female Genital Mutilation.

If you google your name, you’ll see that the AVfM piece appears (currently #8). Our link soon be showing up, probably among the top three.
I should be happy to meet with you in London to explain the ethical, legal, and medical grounds on which you should cease performing this procedure forthwith. In the meantime I wish you a Happy Holiday, and I hope you don’t perform this procedure ever again.
