Give girls choices over their body and their future
In March, UN Women NC UK hosted an event to look at what's happening globally to end FGM.
Comfort Momoh MBE (FGM Consultant and Public Health Specialist) and Joy Clarke (FGM Specialist Midwife) shared stories about women they had met and helped to overcome FGM.
Comfort and Joy, who work tirelessly in the UK and abroad, believe FGM is decreasing slightly in most countries. But there is still a long way to go before we can celebrate zero tolerance. We must remain vigilant and continue to campaign against FGM across the world.
Sadly, for many young girls, it is still a way of life.
