As the spotlight turns toward the world’s women on International Women’s Day (March 8th) and throughout the month of March, CHASING THE CUT is calling out to every one – both women AND men – to invest in ending Female Genital Mutilation and other forms of Violence Against Women. I have a couple of gifts for you for helping end Female Genital Mutilation.

3.TRADITIONAL AFRICAN CLOTHING
“African clothing” is internationally known because is its uniqueness, originality and great designs influenced by the people’s daily activities, food, climate and traditions. Traditional African cottons are made from natural organic fibers and are highly durable and often very colorful, comfortable and quite unique.
I will send you a unique traditional Africa clothing from the communities that I will visit while filming. This is a great opportunity to have this wonderful clothing shipped to your address. Go to our Female Genital Mutilation Campaign HERE and choose this gift.
Also, please remember to share our campaign to end Female Genital Mutilation with your friends.
Much love from East Africa,
