Fake News on Female Genital Mutilation

The online world is inundated with websites and social media campaigns that promote false information or dangerous ideas. Recently, we saw a campaign on promoting female genital mutilation (FGM) on Twitter under the guise of a different practice which is equally as harmful. These tactics are used to normalize and justify dangerous practices. We wrote this piece to explain five of the major justifications of FGM and why they are false. Please share this blog to help debunk the myths.

    Sounds exactly like the 5 myths / fake news about MGM. Astonishing, isn’t it?

    We must fight for all children regardless of sex. Otherwise we may loose them all. Look what’s going on in the US concerning FGM.

    FGM must be stopped, and I’m appalled there’s no federal law guaranteeing girls the right to their uncut genitals. Let us all keep focused and stop this horrible practice.
