FGM is the abbreviation for Female Genital Mutilation. It is the international denomination for the excision of female genitals and constitutes a violation of human rights. Nevertheless, a lot of people in African countries hold on the practice. Why?

BENKADI has the goal to elucidate the practice nationally and internationally and to sensitize the person concerned about its consequences. Lectures and discussions accompany the presentation of the film.
