Did you realise that today is the International Day of Zero Tolerance to FGM?

I asked around and nobody knew this. Indeed if you do an internet search there are very few events or happenings covering this subject. But yet reality tell us this:

"Feb. 6, 2011, marks the ninth International Day of Zero Tolerance to Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting. An estimated 100 million to 140 million girls and women worldwide have undergone female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) and more than 3 million girls are at risk for cutting each year on the African continent alone."
