Female Genital Mutilation (also known as female genital cutting or female circumcision) refers to all procedures involving partial or total removal of the external female genitalia (clitorodotomy, reduction, infibulation – pharaonic circumcision). The practice exists despite of modernizing, public education and legislative procuration. About 100 million girls and women in the world are estimated to have undergone such procedures approximately in 40 countries, especially in Africa. Most resources say that female genital cutting is primarily a cultural practice, no religious matter. The practice is a global problem too. Migrants and immigrants produce their tradition into final destination to retaine their cultural identity. Female genital cutting is an institutionalised manifestation of force commited on women.
