125 million girls in 29 different countries have been exposed to FGM (Female Genital Mutilation). Within the next decade, another 30 million girls will be at risk.
The most important thing to do is to stop any kind of misconception. The mothers and fathers of these girls genuinely believe their daughters will be shunned if not circumcised.
We need to facilitate open discussion on the matter between women, but also between women and men. It will then come forth that the fear of social condemnation is based on assumptions, not related to reality.
