FGM stands for female genital mutilation while CEFM stands for child-early forced marriages. The use of the words mutilation and child early forced marriages insinuate the illegal nature of the two. The term mutilation shows that the act is inhuman and constitutes trespass to a person of a negative and destructive nature. It is total assault. The term early shows that the person is prematurely married off through duress or coercively without the free consent of the girl.
