What is FGM and why
should it end?
FGM, female genital mutilation, is an ancient practice that involves cutting away and/or sewing together the female genitalia. In Africa, it is referred to as "the cut" or "circumcision." FGM is a cultural morality practice, rooted in inequality and discrimination against women and girls in a misguided attempt to curb sexuality and increase marriageability due to subsequent "purity."
This is often a precursor to marriage (child-brides), and once married off, a girl's education ends. The unfortunate outcome is a lifetime of health risks, pregnancy complications, anemia, and more. This practice is a human rights violation and needs to end for good.
