Over 200 million women and girls worldwide are genital mutilated. Every year another 3.5 million girls are added against their will. Female genital mutilation (FGM) has nothing to do with religion, culture or tradition. It's a crime. It's horrific. It's unacceptable. Human rights activist and supermodel Waris Dirie has been fighting this crime for years. At the age of 5 she herself became a victim of FGM. Together with British label Coco de Mer and photographer Rankin, Waris and her Desert Flower Foundation have declared war on FGM. "Our mission is to eradicate FGM and empower women that they can lead a more self-determined life", Waris says.
