FGM stands for "Female Genital Mutilation" or female genital mutilation. It is a practice in which female genitalia, especially the clitoris and labia are mutilated or removed, and often the vagina is sewn shut. Only a small opening remains for menstrual blood and urine. But because menstrual blood and urine cannot drain properly, serious infections are often the result. The women suffer pain for the rest of their lives. This practice is a serious crime against human rights and is condemned by numerous international organizations, including the WHO, the UN, and the Commission on Human Rights.

Globally, an estimated 250 million women and girls are affected by FGM, particularly in Africa, the Middle East, and some Asian countries. In many communities, FGM is seen as a ritual and traditional procedure to prepare girls for marriage. The practice is cruel, inhumane and has serious consequences for the health and well-being of women and girls.

The effects of FGM can be many, from acute complications such as bleeding, infection, and pain, to chronic problems such as menstrual irregularities, sexual problems, and mental illness. The physical and emotional damage from FGM can be lifelong and even fatal.

In recent years, many countries have passed laws to ban FGM and protect victims. However, there are still many communities where FGM is practiced and there is a major challenge in enforcing laws in some countries. In some cases, FGM is also practiced abroad, especially when families live in countries with stricter laws.

Combating FGM requires broad cooperation between governments, non-governmental organizations, communities, and families To end FGM completely, we need to change cultural practices, educate girls and women as well as improve access to education and healthcare.
