The initiative to end FGM came from both who are directly and indirectly affected: women, girls, advocates, doctors, fathers, husbands, and governments have marshaled efforts in various areas to end FGM. When we put efforts towards a common good, we will have fulfilling results in the end. While there are skeptics who want to justify the cut, women should not give up or slow down the efforts. Let’s remain #TogetherForZero.
As we look forward to a world free of FGM, I would like to tell all comrades kudos, for your efforts are not fruitless. We should not tire in this fight. As the Igbo proverb says,“The hunger that has hope for its satisfaction does not kill.”
