A Cairo conference on how to prevent female circumcision concluded that it takes more than a law to stop the physical violation of girls.
"The prevention and abolishment of female genital mutilation (FGM) can be achieved only through a comprehensive approach, promoting behaviour change and using legislative measures as a pivotal tool," said the declaration of a conference held in Cairo this week on the legal tools required to combat the practice of female circumcision.
