FGM and culture

"Every contributor to this week’s question agrees that culture is the primary or only reason why female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C/C) is practiced."

I was surprised to read this:"One participant from Switzerland asserted that there is another way to approach FGM/C as a problem where it is difficult to change behaviors. We do not need to do away with FGM/C. Instead, actors could provide medical supplies for a safe FGM/C/C."
