What does FGM stand for?
Answer: Female Genital Mutilation.
Believe it or not, FGM or female circumcision refers to a traditional, centuries old practice where the clitorides of girls are cut off, burned, or otherwise damaged. This practice still happens to nearly two million young girls in some areas of Africa, the Middle East and Southeastern Asia.
A lot of private groups and government organizations find this practice unethical and unhealthy. Not only can female circumcision be harmful to a girl's mental and sexual health, it can also impact her physical well-being depending on the lack of sanitary conditions and instruments, and the experience of the person performing the circumcision.
To learn more about this practice, check out RAINBO or the World Health Organization.
