Women's rights: The new frontier

April 1994
U.S. News & World Report;4/4/94, Vol. 116 Issue 13, p14
Reports that in the first United States case of its kind, an immigration judge granted Lydia Oluloro, the mother of two girls ages 5 and 6, a suspension of deportation citing `extreme hardship' if the 32-year-old woman and her daughters are sent back to Nigeria. There, Oluloro's girls almost certainly would face an ancient African ritual, in which all or part of their external genitalia is removed. Cheering of decision by women's groups; Comments by Deborah Anker of Harvard Law School.
