Female genital mutilation in Senegal: Insights from a statistical analysis
Female genital mutilation (FGM) is a violation of human rights. Every girl and woman has the right to be protected from this harmful practice, a manifestation of entrenched gender inequality with devastating consequences. FGM is now firmly on the global development agenda, most prominently through its inclusion in Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) target 5.3, which aims to eliminate the practice by 2030. The SDG target of eliminating FGM by 2030 does not appear within reach for Senegal. If trends continue, at least 1 in 5 girls in Senegal will still be subjected to FGM in 2030.
