World-wide Day of Tolerance Zero to the FGM

6 of February 

"World-wide Day of Tolerance Zero to the Female Genital Mutilation"

The terms female genital
cutting (FGC),
female circumcision, and female genital mutilation (FGM) are all used to describe the cultural practice of partly or totally removing portions of the external female genitalia.  FGC ranges in severity from removing the clitoris with or without removing all or part of the labia. The minor form of FGC is when the clitoris is removed. The most severe form of FGM is when all external genitalia are removed and the vaginal opening is stitched nearly closed. 
     The practice of
FGM as damaging to women both physically and emotionally. FGM is typically done without anesthesia or antibiotics.
