Removing the clitoral prepuce, total or partial amputation of the clitoris, or narrowing or sealing of the vaginal opening or other invasive procedures of the external female genitalia for non-medical purposes. These are the four modes that since 1995 the World Health Organization (WHO) lists under the concept of female genital mutilation (FGM). Between 100 and 140 million girls and women worldwide has lived this experience. Tradition for some, aberration for others.
