In common with other forms of gender-based violence, ‘it constitutes a breach of the fundamental right to life, liberty, security, dignity, equality between women and men, non-discrimination and physical and mental integrity. It also violates the rights of the child as defined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.Throughout the world, calls for an end to FGM are gaining strength.

Moreover, the monitoring of the UN Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment pays special attention to FGM. (...).".
