By Khaleda Rahman for MailOnline. These pictures show frightened girls lined up before villagers in Kenya to be circumcised - even though the brutal practice is now illegal in the country. But in many African tribes, traditions are more important than laws and circumcision is considered a rite of passage that marks their transition into womanhood so they can marry. Reuters photographer Siegfried Modola captured this ceremony in rural Kenya for four teenage girls of the Pokot tribe, in Baringo County.
The supposedly progressive piece, intended for teenage girls, refers to women as 'non-prostate owners', ignores the organ for female pleasure and fails to mention any potential dangers.
The country is at a defining moment. Many of the rest will choose the most misogynistic presidential candidate in modern American history. There is a depressing irony in the fact it was that Republican candidate himself who reminded everyone that there are plenty of men in power who use that power to demean, denigrate, and demoralize women.
