Three million girls abused and mutilated every year

I was going to write an extensive post on this, but it is so depressing I couldn't face it. From the Unicef press site:

An estimated three million girls in sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East undergo genital mutilation/cutting every year, according to a UNICEF report released today.
Yet the study says that with adequate commitment and support, this millennium-long custom could be eliminated within a single generation.
