The Senate on Wednesday passed the Stop FGM Act that will give federal law enforcement greater tools to prosecute those who perpetrate the act, and HR 1600 is now headed to President Donald Trump’s desk.One of the most important people to oppose the mainly Islamic practice is survivor Ayaan Hirsi Ali:
The United States has long opposed the practice, which takes place both domestically and internationally.
One has to wonder, of course, where feminist movements are when it comes to subjects like this, and come to think of it, even N.O.W? Their silence can be quite telling so long as they continue with it.
I want to personally thank @JacksonLeeTX18 and @MarshaBlackburn for their leadership and commitment to ending FGM in the U.S. In an incredibly difficult year, the little girls in our country who are vulnerable to this painful practice were not forgotten.— Ayaan Hirsi Ali (@Ayaan) December 16, 2020
It's good Congress addressed this issue, and better when Trump puts his stamp of approval on the legislation.
