What is FGM?


Female genital mutilation comprises “all procedures that involve partial or total removal of the external female genitalia, or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons”. Female genital mutilation is a form of violence, predominantly committed against children. It is not only child abuse, but serious sexual abuse, grievous bodily harm and a violation of human rights. There is no excuse, whether religious or cultural, for violence against children.
