Até fiquei mal disposta

Miwa Yanagi


«Rape marks a girl as marriageable among the Arunta in Australia. At age 14 or 15 the Arunta girl is taken out into the bush by a group of men for the vulva cutting ceremony. A designated man cuts the girl's vulva after which she is gang raped by a group of men which does not include her future husband. When the ceremony is concluded the girl is taken to her husband and from then on no one else has the right to access to her.» (Spencer and Gillen 1927)
