Lasadacwo woman - Somaliland

Never forget one thing:
In the "Horn of Africa" a gynecological custom called infibulation persists. 5 million isolated inhabitants of Somalia eke out a marginal living by following their herds of sheep, camel, and cattle in search of pasture and water.
In Somaliland and the southern tip of the Arabian peninsula, infibulation has been freely performed on prepubertal girls and so there are millions of women whose external genitalia have been altered. Anthropologists call the "the land of the sewn women"...
