'Join survivors of female genital mutilation (FGM) also known as female circumcision.
And supporters against the practice as we discuss FGM in New York and the world.
And, come together to put an end to this practice that mutilates a girl every 16 seconds.
There are currently 140 million mutilated women worldwide, over 300,000 of them are in the United States.'
Founder of 'End Female Genital Mutilation' meetup group.
We are a small group.
So, we will be concentrating on how to find and publicize solutions to preventing FGM.
If you know of any successes - please email me - or, join this group.
