Female Genital Mutilation in Mali

Female Genital Mutilation in Mali

Excision, also known as female genital mutilation (FGM,) it is thought to affect up to 140 million women and girls worldwide, and it is recognized as a violation of human rights. It is defined by the World Health Organization as “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.” In 2012 the United Nations General Assembly unanimously voted to work for the elimination of FGM throughout the world. This video is a narrative of an NGO worker seeking to end Female Genital Mutilation in Mali in 2016.
