DOUALA, Cameroon
A stone and stick used for breast ironing are seen on a stool outside survivor of breast ironing Julie Ndjessa's home in Douala, Cameroon, November 4, 2013. The stick is mainly used as for preparing food. 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.
