Correction made

A passage in a July 30 column by Lauren M. Sardi, “Before pointing finger at other countries, look at our own traditions,” was incorrect. The passage in the second paragraph should have read as follows: “What most people don't know, however, is that infibulation, which includes the complete removal of external female genitalia and a suturing of the vaginal opening, occurs in less than 10 percent of all documented cases of FGM, according to the World Health Organization. By far, more common forms of FGM involve a procedure in which only the female foreskin is removed.”
