POPULATION REFERENCE BUREAU | Female Genital Mutilation and Cutting: Telling a Story with Trends
© 2010 Population Reference Bureau. All rights reserved. Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting Overview An estimated 100 million to 140 million girls and women worldwide have undergone female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) and more than 3 million girls are at risk for cutting each year on the African continent alone. 1 FGM/C is generally performed on girls between ages 4 and 12, although it is practiced in some cultures as early as a few days after birth or as late as just prior to marriage. According to a 2006 WHO study, FGM/C can be linked to increased complications in childbirth and even maternal deaths. 1 P. Stanley Yoder and Shane Khan, Numbers of Women Circumcised in Africa: The Production of a Total (Calverton, MD: ORC Macro, March 2008).
© 2010 Population Reference Bureau. All rights reserved. Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting Overview continued FGM/C is practiced in at least 28 countries in Africa and a few others in Asia and the Middle East. FGM/C is practiced at all educational levels and in all social classes and occurs among many religious groups, although no religion mandates it.

Type 2 or excision: Partial or total removal of the clitoris and the labia minora, with or without excision of the labia majora. Type 3 or Infibulation: Narrowing of the vaginal orifice with creation of a covering seal by cutting and placing together the labia minora and/or the labia majora, with or without excision of the clitoris. Type 4 or Unclassified: All other harmful procedures to the female genitalia for nonmedical purposes, for example, pricking, piercing, incising, scraping, and cauterization. Note: Current questionnaires used in the Demographic and Health Surveys do not differentiate between Types I and II, but only between whether a girl or woman has been cut, whether tissue has been removed, and whether tissue has been sewn closed.
