123. Summer Holiday is 'Cutting Season' in Somalia – Female Genital Mutilation

Read it here: http://bit.ly/2I5gwx9

During the summer holiday thousands of migrant families travel with their young daughters to their native countries to undergo female genital mutilation.

FGM is banned in most countries, but it's still legal in Somalia, which - together with the rest of Somalia - has the highest rate of female genital mutilation in the world. Over 90 percent of girls in Somalia are cut by traditional cutters, most of whom have no medical training.

So why does this dangerous, painful and sometimes deadly practice continue in so many countries? And what would it take to stop it?
