Female genital cutting, also called female circumcision, has affected more than 135 million women and girls worldwide. Complications can include severe bleeding, infection, long-term difficulties with intercourse and childbirth, even death.
There's no getting around it. The practice of female genital cutting (also called FGC or female genital mutilation) is difficult to talk about.
But every day, as many as 6,000 women and girls risk undergoing this painful, debilitating procedure.
I just took the first step in fighting female genital cutting by signing a petition to stop FGC. I hope you'll help me fight this practice by signing your name to the petition as well!
