Egypt Bans Female Genital Cutting

Good for Egypt.

I wish there was more background and context, however. I'm left wondering who banned it, how long there's been a push to ban it, and who exactly was behind the push (I'm going to guess women).

If you want more background on FGC (though I suspect most folks who read this already know what it is), feministe also has a link to Wikipedia.
