28 Too Many's new research, Country Profile: FGM in Mali, confirms that FGM remains a major issue in Mali and that 91% of girls and women have experienced FGM. The report details the practice and explains the underlying social drivers which support the continuation of FGM.
Declarations signed by over 350 UK faith leaders were presented to the UK Government at the Girl Summit in London on 22nd July 2014. The declarations make clear that female genital mutilation (FGM) and forced marriage (FM) are not religious requirements and that no faith supports these harmful practices.
