TRUTH !!
In Mauritania it is said that the size of a woman indicates the amount of space she occupies in her husband's heart. From as young as five, girls are fattened up and this is often reinforced with beatings and other forms of torture. This means that Mauritania is one of the few countries in the world where girls, on average, have received more food than boys. The rationale is simple. A fat girl is taken to be evidence that her family are wealthy enough not to require her to work. This tradition, known as "Leblouh", was thought to be dying out but, following a military coup in 2008, there have been claims by women's groups that it is once again on the rise.
