In this Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014 photo, Hamdeya Nazmy, 43, who was forcefully subjected to female genital mutilation as a 9-year-old child poses for a photograph with her 5-year-old daughter Demyana, in Sidfa, 340 kilometers (210 miles) south of Cairo, Egypt. Nazmy has seven daughters and only one was submitted to female genital cutting. Genital mutilation involves removing all or part of the clitoris and labia minora. It is practiced in 29 countries, most of them in East and West Africa, but also in Egypt and parts of Iraq and Yemen. (AP Photo/Nariman El-Mofty)
