EndFGMToday, an issue advocacy group, said Tuesday that it’s time for Mississippi and Alabama to join the other 35 other states to protect women and girls from female genital mutilation, which they said happens right here in the U.S.
Only 15 states in the nation have not yet enacted their own anti-female genital mutilation legislation. Eight more states have enacted FGM laws in the last year. North Carolina is the latest state to protect its women and girls from this practice.
