#EndFGMToday.com is a movement to raise awareness nationwide about the horrors of female genital mutilation (FGM). According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than half a million girls and women in America have already been subjected to such mutilation—or are at risk of having it inflicted upon them. FGM has also been condemned as a hideous violation of human rights by the United Nations and the World Health Organization.
