Woman on a Mission: Jaha Dukureh Fights to End FGM, Female Genital Mutilation

FGM, Female Genital Mutilation, is a disgusting black mark for humanity. The practice which cuts young girls vaginal areas in the name of “womanhood” is entrenched in cultures as a “proper” way for girls to become women. This horrendous practice from the dark ages often kills girls and destroys how women view their bodies. It causes complications in childbirth and longterm health issues. It’s cruel and sick. Thankfully there are women who are working non-stop to end this cruel practice. Jaha Dukureh lives in the US and wants to end the practice of FGM along with “vacation cutting” where girls are sent to other countries for the procedure. We can help her. Let’s end this now!
