Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is a form of gender-based violence that is outlawed in many countries. FGM represents a violation of the human rights of the girls and women who are subjected to this practice, for which there are no medical benefits. FGM can have devastating and long term physical and psychological consequences for its survivors.
