Résumé (français)  :

Dans « Sketches from The Lancet » (24 avril, p. 1453) 1 Peter Kandela explique comment il y a plus de 130 ans, le Lancet avait joué un rôle dans le renversement du soutien d’une forme de mutilation génitale féminine au Royaume-Uni - la clitoridectomie. J’espère que vous pourrez jouer un rôle en détournant l’aide d’une autre forme de mutilation génitale féminine répandue au Royaume-Uni aujourd’hui : l’épisiotomie.

Abstract (English)  :

In his ‘Sketches from The Lancet’ (April 24, p 1453) 1 Peter Kandela describes how over 130 years ago The Lancet played a part in turning support away from one form of female genital mutilation in the UK—clitoridectomy. Hopefully, you can play a part in turning support away from another form of female genital mutilation which is widespread in the UK today — episiotomy.
