Female genital cutting is found in some communities in and from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. The UNFPA estimates that between 100 to 140 million girls and women have undergone some form of genital mutilation/cutting, and at least 3 million girls are at risk of undergoing the practice every year. FGC has both immediate and long term consequences to a female’s physical and emotional health.
Trust Women will convene a high level group of authorities from the public and private sectors to discuss key challenges and solutions to ending the practice worldwide.
