There are 200 million survivors of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM.) 44 Million are under 14 years old! 3.9 million girls are a risk each year.
I've made a film to give a voice to girls whose voices have not been heard in a thousand years and who are standing up against FGM.--see
And next Saturday October 27th I'm participating in the Walk to End Female Genital Mutilation to raise awareness and money to help Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation open a special center for women, girls, parents and the community.
Female genital mutilation is the intentional removal of the female genitalia for non-medical reasons. Many girls die daily as a result of FGM. 85% of maternal and infant mortality in Africa is the result of FGM. We want FGM stopped everywhere in the world, including Western countries like Canada--where I'm from--and the United States where it is also an issue.
