"harmful traditional practices" Ethiopia Local Custom Tip by zuhur

Ethiopia Local Customs: 83 reviews and 200 photos

I went to attend a meeting in Ethiopia on harmful traditional practices that hurt women. While we are concerned with such practices in many parts of the world, some of our Ethiopian representatives spoke about 1) FGM - very problematic , still, in many parts of Africa and also the Middle East and 2) kidnapping and early marriage - which is an abusive custom
also as in TOO many parts of the world 3) wife-beating

There is no category below for human rights "travel" - but anyway, seems as important to remember as the fun aspects of the country
