Call upon the government of Tanzania to halt the on-going genital mutilation of girls and women in the Tarime district.

Equality Now has just issued an Urgent Alert calling on the government of Tanzania to halt the on-going genital mutilation of girls and women in the Tarime District. Equality Now is deeply concerned about reports that over 5,000 girls are at risk of undergoing female genital mutilation (FGM) during the forthcoming December holiday season in the Tarime District. Please join Equality Now and call on the Tanzanian government to immediately ensure that girls from Tarime are protected from FGM and the perpetrators who have carried out the practice there are arrested and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
