FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION

Female genital mutilation.

Female genital mutilation ( FGM) is the partial or total removal of external female genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs for non medical reasons. 

Areas practicing FGM are ; Africa, Southeast Asia and the Middle East. 

Female genital mutilation is done to girls at different stages in difderent communities. Some after birth and some just at puberty.

Female genital mutilation is not healthy. The World Health Organisation has been fihhting female genital mutilation from 2009 till fourth. 

I read a book whereby in the story, FGM was considered sacred and girls were made to believe that it was going to turn them into women of substances. 

Most of them believed so since it was their mothers words. Do you know it is believed that women are the ones who started FGM as a way of protecting their sex organs from rape that is when they were abused by men.

The truth is that men are not at all in FGM dealings rather than women themselves. Women are their own enemies. Let us clearly stop FGM and its harm. 

FGM clearly leads to loss of life and other health hazard life term diseases.
