Abstract

يشكل ختان الإناث انتهاكاً لحقوق الإنسان الخاصة بالنساء والفتيات. وحتى إذا لم يكن العنف هو القصد منه فهو يشكل حتما ممارسة عنيفة، ناهيك عن كونه مظهراً من مظاهر التفاوت المتجذر في المساواة بين الجنسين وكونه تمييزياً بطبيعته. إن جذور هذه الممارسة ضاربة في الفهم الثقافي لنوع الجنس والحياة الجنسية والزواج والأسرة ويؤثر ذلك الفهم في كيفية النظر إلى الختان وتقبله في السياقات المختلفة. وعلى الرغم من التفاوت عبر البلدان الخمسة الخاضعة للتحليل وداخل حدود البلد الواحد، تؤكد التجارب أن ختان الإناث في المجتمعات التي تمارسه يعتبر خطوة ضرورية لتعزيز منزلة الفتاة وحمايتها، وفي أحيان كثيرة لجعلها أكثر أهلية للزواج. يؤدي ختان الإناث دور الميثاق الاجتماعي والقاعدة الاجتماعية وهو يرتكز على توقعات متبادلة داخل تلك المجتمعات.
