France Seeks To End Genital Mutilation

The French government has launched an aggressive program to end forced marriages and genital mutilation in the nation. Over 100,000 leaflets will be distributed in schools and other public services explaining the dangers of genital mutilation. French law forbids forced marriage and allows prosecution of anyone who mutilates the genitals of a girl who has French citizenship or has resident status, even if the operation is conducted in another country. The campaign seeks to get the word out to immigrant neighborhoods where too often women are subject to the barbaric practice of genital mutilation. It is estimated about 55,000 women and girls in France have been genitally mutilated and about 70,000 young women live in fear o being married against their will.
