This is barbaric.

So are the rape gangs that prowl the streets of Cameroon and Tanzania.

Families take extraordinary measures to disguise their daughters...who are at a very high risk of being sexually assaulted...or worse.

The practice is most common in the Christian and animist south of the country, rather than in the Muslim North and Far North provinces, where only 10 per cent of women are affected.

I suppose this makes sense. After all, the only thing a Muslim family has to do after a rape is burn/behead/stone the victim... The others, misguided though they may be, are trying to save their daughters from violence and emotional trauma.

Note the subtle statmemnts. Happens in Christian and animist part but not in the muslim part. Anyone have thoughts.................

Breasts are not very noticeable in a burka. That is why they wear them.

AMEN! It calls to mind how many mommies take their little girls to Glamor Shots, paint them up, friz their hair, have them pout suggestively into the camera, and shoot pictures of them.

My wife's hairdresser(single mom), had one of those pics done with her 14 year old daughter. She proudly displayed the picture at her station. The mom and daughter had the same low cut top on.
