Description
 
More than 200 million girls and women alive today have undergone female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) in the 30 countries where available data show this harmful practice is concentrated. More than 3 million girls are estimated to be at risk for FGM/C annually in Africa. FGM/C is rooted in the cultural traditions of many communities but has adverse health consequences and the UN identifies it as a violation of human rights. The U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) include FGM/C as part of their global strategy to respond to gender-based violence. This report (1) summarizes findings from recent U.S. and UN studies about factors contributing to FGM/C and approaches to addressing this practice; and (2) examines Stateńˇ╗s and USAIDńˇ╗s current efforts to address FGM/C abroad. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
