End Female Genital Mutilation in Iraq

 

Female genital mutilation (FGM) is internationally recognized as a violation of human rights. Together, the United Nations and UNICEF created International Zero Tolerance Day for FGM, drawing awareness to a procedure that affects at least 200 million women and girls worldwide. Significant efforts are being made to reduce FGM in the Kurdish region of Iraq through local efforts and government policies. Though this harmful practice is far from over, communities throughout the region are working together to improve the lives of women and girls everywhere. #EndFGM
