Female Circumcision in Sudan
Nuba Mountains, Sudan- June 2003: Dou, a young girl from the Nuba Mountains, tries to escape from her circumcision treatment. Forced by social pressure almost all young girls in the Nuba Mountains undergo a circumcision. The worst possible form is the Pharaonic Circumcision which Dou was treated for. After removing the clitoris and minora adjacent labia, the vagina is closed with thread leaving only a small opening for urine and menstruation blood. It will be her future husband to open her again.
