ENDING FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION

In Ethiopia 65% of women aged 15-49 have experienced Female Genital Mutilation. The Ethiopian government officially criminalised the practice more than a decade ago and, according to UNICEF, the nationwide prevalence of FGM in Ethiopia declined from 74% in 2005 to 65% in 2017. Despite official banns more than half of the women in Ethiopia are still being affected by it.
