Huffington Post: Female Genital Mutilation in Kenya -- When Will It End?

When you Google images of "FGM girls" you would be shocked at the eye popping and stomach churning images. The brutality inflicted on young girls in tragic.
Nashiru, a practitioner of female genital mutilation (FGM) in a Maasai community in Kenya, says, "Cutting girls is something our people have done for hundreds of years. No one can convince us that it is wrong". 
But Kenya can change this and can serve as a model for other countries where the scourge of FGM continues.
My take.
