U.N., The Guardian Back Campaign To End FGM In U.S.

The Guardian: Ban Ki-moon: FGM a ‘human rights violation’ that must end
“The United Nations secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, on Monday described the practice of female genital mutilation as a ‘human rights violation’ that needed to end, on the day the Guardian threw its weight behind a campaign against the practice in the U.S. Jaha Dukureh, a 24-year-old American who was mutilated as a child, is leading the campaign to end FGM in the U.S. with a Change.org petition urging the Obama administration to commission a report into how many women are affected and at risk today…” (Holpuch, 5/12).
