Brief overview
The above article is about the virginity testing practice. In the ensuing debate about whether or not the practice is still favourable in the modern era, the author takes a stance which grants credence on the necessity to respect customs and appreciate the benefit that is derived from such cultural practices. Also important to consider is the fact that those who still perform the practice do so voluntarily and without the use of any force being imposed upon them. The article includes recorded voice clips which give the reader and/or listener a perspective on the role of the virginity testing practice by offering the views of those advocating for its perpetuation. In the case of the article, 76-year-old MaDuma Mbili, a virginity tester is consulted.
