Para millones de colegialas de Egipto el verano simboliza una temporada de terror porque marca el inicio de la época de mutilación genital femenina (MGF).

Según Naciones Unidas, de las más de 125 millones de niñas y mujeres vivas hoy en día que se han sometido al procedimiento, una de cada cuatro vive en Egipto.

Un informe del gobierno publicado en mayo revela que el 92% de las mujeres egipcias casadas, de 15 a 49 años, han sido sometidas a la MGF. Esa cifra ya se redujo del 97% en el 2000, pero la práctica sigue siendo la norma en Egipto.

La mayoría de las niñas son mutiladas entre las edades de 9 y 12 años, y las operaciones por lo general se llevan a cabo durante las vacaciones de verano para que puedan recuperarse en casa.

La lucha para erradicar la MGF en Egipto se está desplegando en una serie de frentes, desde los tribunales hasta los lugares de culto, hasta las calles de las ciudades de mayor riesgo.
