Ending female genital mutilation & child marriage – No Time to Lose | UNICEF

Description: Subscribe to UNICEF here: http://bit.ly/1ltTE3m. The mutilation or cutting of female genitalia, also known as FGM/C, and child marriage are human rights violations and manifestations of gender inequality, yet these age-old traditions continue today. More than 130 million girls and women alive today have undergone FGM/C in the 29 countries in Africa and the Middle East where it is most common. Beyond extreme physical and psychological pain, girls who undergo the harmful practice are at risk of prolonged bleeding, infection, infertility and death. Child marriage is even more widespread and can lead to a lifetime of disadvantage and deprivation. Worldwide, more than 700 million women alive today were married as children. We have the knowledge and programmes in place to bring these practices to a definitive end, but progress must be accelerated. There is no time to lose.
