41 percent of women have gone under the practise of female genuital mutilation (FGM).

Part of the campaign has focused on FGM. The survey by the government shows that mothers are the main party responsible for forcing their daughters experience the painful ritual and then grandmothers and fathers.

The survey’s results show that none of the participants in Dohuk, Kurdistan’s smallest of the three provinces, were circumcised while the highest rate of FGM was in Sulaimai.

Erbil, Kurdistan region's capital, came between Sulaimani and Dohuk. According to the survey, most of the women were circumcised while they were under five years old.

Jamil Ali Rashid, the director general of health affairs at the ministry of health, said “the survey’s results are totally correct and credible because the participants were given clear questions and special teams examined the women who participated in the survey after their consent was secured.”

A campaign to end FGM practices in Kurdistan was launched in February 2010 by 51 non-governmental organizations.

    A comment I sent to minivannews, which they blocked-

    "So here goes- Many long moons ago, I did something extremist. It was around that time I had reached sexual maturity and my younger brother was approaching his teens. My female hormones were raging and I noticed I was becoming increasingly voyeuristic. This was when it happened. I had denuded in front of my little brother- I had then let him explore me, front & `back. Now I did not molest him, although I did fondle him from outside. I then pleasured myself in front of him.

    There I’ve confessed in public. I feel you are the kind of person who would reach out to someone like me who is facing an increasingly conformist society that refuses to accept freaks like me, who seek closure, understanding and counseling. As the years have passed I wonder what my little brother thinks of me.

    Thank you for providing us with a platform to express our opinions, views, thoughts.

    This is the fear i m concealing.
