Maasai girls are traditionally forced into early marriages and are required to undergo female genital mutilation (FGM) as a right of passage from childhood.  Girls as young as nine years of age can marry much older men who may have several wives.  The Kenyan government has outlawed FGM but the practice continues as it difficult to enforce.
