About 60 million women and girls are affected by FGM in Indonesia,which represents half of the population.
Dainius Pūras, the UN special rapporteur on the "Right to Health", published an article on the current situation in Indonesia. The medical conditions for the female population as well as the position of women within society are devastating.
Pre-marital sex is highly stigmatized, leading to limited access to birth control and to the majority of the female population being cut.
The inequality between women and men has to be eliminated!
FGM is practiced mainly in countries where gender inequality prevails.
The fight against gender disparity and against the lack of education is essential in the fight against FGM.
Help us fight FGM and support our projects!
