Today, 6 February, is the International Day of Zero Tolerance for FGM.
Today is a day of global advocacy and a chance for ordinary people all over the world to raise their voices and make a difference for girls.
Today is a day when we can all stand up and loudly proclaim that we have “zero tolerance” for this human rights violation and form of violence against women.
