We need your help to end FGM by 2030!
FGM refers to the process of intentionally altering or injuring the female genital organs for non-medical reasons, posing serious consequences to women’s health — including severe bleeding, higher risk of HIV transmission, infections, infertility, complications in childbirth, and an increased risk of newborn deaths.
FGM is recognized internationally as a violation of the fundamental human rights of girls and women, and reflects a deep-rooted sense of inequality between the sexes. Yet, it is estimated that at least 200 million girls and women alive today have undergone some form of FGM.
Sign the petition to urge world leaders to #LeveltheLaw by enacting and supporting the implementation of laws that protect girls and criminalize FGM. Help end this harmful practice for good.
