There is and it's a very serious issue. It can cause all sorts of health problems for the women (and sometimes their babies). It's known in official circles as female genital mutilation (FGM), and for good reason. There are several different types, ranging from just a small cut, to essentially removing all the external genitalia and sewing it all up so all that remains is one tiny hole. Sometimes the women literally have to be cut open by their husbands. It's horrific.
