About This Activity

Female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) is the partial or total removal of the female genitalia for non-medical reasons. We are walking for the 2nd year to raise awareness about this atrocious practice on innocent little girls. FGM occurs right here in the U.S. on American girls born to immigrant parents.  507,000 women and girls have either undergone or at risk of FGM/C in the U.S.  30 million girls under the age of 15 are still at risk of undergoing FGM in the world. At least 5 girls are mutilated/cut every hour in the world. Join us and help put an end to this heinous child abuse and Walk to End FGM!
