Overall, 26 percent of women age 15-49 in Ethiopia have experienced either physical or sexual violence, or both. Four percent of women have experienced physical violence during a pregnancy.

Horrifying. The only word that can describe the fact that 65 percent of women in Ethiopia age 15-49 are circumcised, i.e. have undergone female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM) in their childhood or puberty, a procedure when parts of their intimate area are cut and modified.
