Female genital mutilation -- an exported medical hazard
Questionnaire, clinical examination
Elgaali, M.; Strevens, H.; Mårdh, P.A.
Year of data collection
Women with FGM in an immigrant association somewhere in Scandinavia
Prevalence data on FGM
Claims that 35% of the 140 women had been clitoridectomized, 17% had excision, and 11% infibulation. What about the rest? It does not say
Limitations of study
All kinds of limitations: the analysts do not know what year the study was conducted, in what country ("Scandinavia"), or ethnic background of the respondents. It presents contradictions: somewhere in the text it is said that 15 of the 75 daughters of the respondents (=19%) had gone through FGM while the family was residing in Scandinavia, somewhere else that this had happened to 10% of the daughters.
