Girls play a clapping game during a weekly education session about breast ironing and rape by survivor of breast ironing Julie Ndjessa at Ndjessa's family home in Douala, Cameroon, November 3, 2013. New government research shows that 'breast ironing,' where the breasts of young girls are flattened using a hot stone, has seen a 50 percent decline since it was first accidentally uncovered during a 2005 survey by the German Technical Cooperation Agency (GTZ) on rape and incest in Cameroon.
