HERSFoundation commented on the word castration
The ovaries are the female gonads the testicles are the male gonads. Removal of the ovaries is female castration and removal of the testicles is male castration. Educate girls, women, boys and men about the 500,000 women who are needlessly castrated every year in the USA. www.hersfoundation.org/anatomy.

HERSFoundation commented on the word female castration
There are 450,000 women castrated in the USA every year. Female castration is removal of the female gonads, the ovaries. Most girls and women are not taught that they have gonads and that they are as important to women as men's gonads are to men. www.hersfoundation.org/anatomy
HERSFoundation commented on the word hysterectomy
Hysterectomy is surgical removal of the uterus and cervix. The uterus is a hormone responsive reproductive sex organ that supports the bladder and the bowel. Uerine contractions that occur during orgasm are not possible without a uterus. There are alternatives to hysterectomy that keep the female organs intact. www.hersfoundation.org/anatomy.
