Global Pressure against FGM

According to UNICEF, more than 30 million girls globally will be subjected to Female Genital Mutilation in the next decade. That means that an average 3 million girls will undergo the horrifying experience annually at some part of the world. Which means out of all the girls born in a year in the world, 3 million have a predetermined fate that might ruin their lives forever, or kill them in the process. Those are 3 million girls who are doomed to be miserable for their entire existence as soon as they reach puberty. Yet these 3 million girls can be helped before the situation gets too dire, we can decide that every girl deserves a chance to a good life and a full life. We can apply pressure to have our girls experience life like the rest of us, without having to undergo such a needless and horrific cultural experience.
