Nigeria has banned female genital mutilation

Culture

Goodluck

According to UNICEF, 130 million girls and women in 29 different African and Middle-Eastern countries, have gone through female Genital Mutilation or Cutting (FGM/C)

One of the last laws, passed by exiting President Goodluck Jonathan, banns this procedure and therefore makes it a criminal act.

UNICEF hopes that by passing this law, no women in Nigeria should undergo this horrific procedure anymore.

We hope the other countries will follow soon.
