The United Nations (UN) has launched a global campaign to end the often deadly practice of female genital mutilation (FGM) within a generation, as survivors says it has ‘shattered’ their lives.

UN secretary-general, Ban Ki-moon, points out that, "The mutilation of girls and women must stop in this generation, our generation."

Speaking during his visit to Kenya’s capital Nairobi, Ban also stated that men and boys must be encouraged to support the fight against FGM, adding that they should be praised when they do.
