EMPOWERING WOMEN

What is Female Genital Mutilation

Female genital mutilation is a painful operation during which the female genitals are partial or entirely removed or injured.  The whole purpose of this operation is to inhibit the woman’s sexual desires.
There are three main types of female genital mutilation practiced, type 1, 2 and 3.
Type 1     The clitoral hood is removed and most time this is accompanied by the clitoris itself.
Type 2     This involves the removal of the clitoris and the inner labia.
Type 3     Removal of all or part of the inner and outer labia and usually the clitoris and the fusion of the wound leaving a small hole for the passage of
urine and menstrual blood.  The fused wound is opened for intercourse and childbirth.
Type one and two are more commonly practiced.
