A Policy Brief on Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting This policy brief provides the vision and rationale for Islamic Relief to campaign for an end to FGM/C and guides intervention efforts to eradicate it. It calls for the realisation of the fundamental and God-given right of girls and women to live healthy, fulfilled lives free from violence and harm. Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C) currently affects 130 million females, mostly within Africa, and a further two million are at risk of being cut every year. It is a harmful practice, one that varies in its severity and is usually driven by a complex mixture of culture, tradition, religion and social pressure.
