, N° d'index: ACT 77/010/1997

Female genital mutilation (FGM) is arguably one of the most widespread and systematic violations of the human rights of women and girls, of whom approximately 135 million worldwide are genitally mutilated. The World Health Organization estimates that two million girls a year - some 6,000 a day - undergo genital mutilation.
