Every year, over 3 million girls and women worldwide (the vast majority of them under 15 years old) suffer some form of Female Genital Mutilations (FGM). This means that each minute 6 girls throughout the world are cut.

On the south side of the Mediterranean, in Egypt around 80% of girls have been subjected to FGM.

North of the Mediterranean, in the European Union, an estimated 500,000 women have been the victims of FGM, including between 42,000 and 61,000 women in France.
Every year, during the summer holidays, thousands of young girls and teenagers return to their parents’ home country where they risk becoming the victims of FGM.
