Female genital mutilation
Female genital mutilation (FGM) is a procedure performed on a woman or girl to remove her external genitalia partially or fully, or to damage or change her genitalia for non-medical reasons. It is very painful and can have serious and long-lasting health impacts. It can be life-threatening as it is often carried out by a non-professional.
