International News – FGM Ceremonies Take Place in Tanzania

The Tanzanian government has allowed mass Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) ceremonies to take place despite the fact that the practice is outlawed in Tanzania. Equality Now has launched a protest action against the government of Tanzania, because the law is not effectively enforced.

Thousands of girls are subjected to genital mutilation at these ceremonies, which usually take place in December, despite appeals from international and national organisations, the government of Tanzania has not acted to prevent these ceremonies
