There are 150,000 circumcised women in Sweden: The number of circumcised women in Sweden has increased tremendously and is probably two times what has been thought of before. A new study reveals that there are at least 150,000 women in Sweden who have undergone the procedure. Socialstyren estimated the number of circumcised women in Sweden at 38,000 in 2015. The new study shows that as grossly understated. The study also shows that Sweden is one of the countries that has the greatest number of immigrants from the countries that practise circumcision - countries like Somalia and Ethiopia. Some of the girls were cut so early in life that they have no memory of it. And the practice continues even with children who are in Sweden. The custom is so deeply embeded in certain parents that they take their little girls to their home countries to have it done even though this is against Swedish.
