Female Genital Mutilation also known as female genital cutting and female circumcision is the ritual removal of some or all of the external female genitalia. UNICEF estimated in 2016 that 200million women had undergone the procedures in 27 countries in Africa.

Many young women have gone through this horriffic ordeal and some are speaking out to share their experiences in order to help put an end to this practice.

The Olori of Ife, Wuraola Ogunwusi has recently joined the fight against Female Genital Mutilation in Nigeria through her work with United Nations and UN Women.

The Olori took to her Instagram page to talk about a woman’s traumatic experience with FGM and what her older sister went through as a result of it.

She wrote:

“Today, we discuss FGM, Female Genital Mutilation. Through my work with @UnitedNations @UnitedWomen, we can end this terrible practice in Nigeria and Africa. “I was 6-years-old when I was cut. For me, the most traumatic experience was seeing what my older sister went through. She wasn’t as lucky  as me. she suffered terrible injuries and almost died. the scars will remain with us for life.” Assetou Toure, now 49, works to educate others and fight the practice of FGM. In our new series #FromWhereIStand, she tells her story and reminds us all that “we have a duty to act, to ensure every girl is able to live a dignified and fulfilled life.” #unwomen #endfgm: UN Women #OloriWuraola #HMWuraola #Nigeria
