[United Nations] February 6 is declared the International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).

More than 130 million girls and women alive today have undergone FGM in the 29 countries in Africa and the Middle East where FGM is concentrated. Although the United Nations banned the practice in 2012, if current trends continue, as many as 30 million girls are at risk of being subjected to FGM before their 15th birthday.
