UN: 4.1 Million Girls Will Be Subjected To Female Genital Mutilation This Year.

: 06/30/2020 - 12:39

The United Nations is warning that 4.1 million girls will be subjected to female genital mutilation this year.

Around 33,000 girls under 18 will also be forced into marrying older men.

A new report by the UN sexual and reproductive health agency is highlighting the extreme preference for sons over daughters in some countries.

There are fears if services remain impacted by the pandemic millions of more girls will be neglected.
