still a spark of hope in the world

Egypt bans all female circumcision.

Glory be.

Does look like a good thing.

I know far less than I probably should about the situation in Egypt... don't actually know whether it's going to be generally enforced, whether it's all just gonna go underground and happen anyway.

But it's encouraging, anyway.

Well, I know it happens "underground" in this country, even still, so my optimism is guarded. Still, foot-binding is no longer in style, so there's hope.
