The picture of the week
International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation, Abuja, Nigeria
Today we commemorate the International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).
Over 200 million girls and women alive today have undergone this life-threatening and demeaning socio-cultural practice. Three million girls are at risk of undergoing FGM each year. Our voices and actions matter in the fight to #EndFGM. Don't be a supporter of FGM. No girl needs to be cut! #BecauseSheMatters.
I am Onyinye Edeh and I stand against female genital mutilation/cutting.
If you are yet to watch my documentary addressing FGM, see it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWPR8P1_ebc
