WOMEN UNDERGO FGM IN MEDICAL CLINICS

It’s 2016 and Singapore, an as presumed modern cosmopolitan city, still hasn’t banned FGM.

The cruel procedure is carried out by medical professionals within the Malay community. Malays are making up to 13% of the population, however they they haven’t been included in the latest UN global report on FGM.

FGM is widespread  due to the community’s pressure and  is done before the age of 2, which involves cutting the tip of the clitoris.

Research suggests that the procedure is more widespread in Asia and the Middle East than commonly perceived.

It’s 2016 and high time that these communities raise awareness on this inhuman ritual and ban FGM!
