Cultures and traditions that have no place in the modern world

Day 19 of the #WinterABC, is about traditions and cultures that don’t have a place in the modern world. These are so many but and this is where the one man’s meat is another’s poison.
Am thinking about the issue of selling ladies to their husbands in the name of bride price but I will leave that to the real feminists since I was told I can’t be feminist by a lady who thinks men have to right to be.
Female genital mutilation (FGM), also known as female genital cutting and female circumcision is one of those things I don’t believe has a place in the modern world. The practice is found in Africa including Uganda my home, Asia and the Middle East, and within communities from countries in which FGM is common It’s sad that have seen an Egyptian medical doctor defend it.
There should be other ways to initiate girls into womanhood.
