"Every day, tens of thousands of girls have their health, rights, and futures were stolen. Some are subjected to female genital mutilation, Some are forced into "marriages" as children, and still, others are neglected or starved, simply because they are female.

In many instances, parents who subject their daughters to harmful practices may do so with good intentions. They wrongly accept that female genital mutilation must factor into acceptance by peers in communities where this practice is widespread. They mistakenly believe that marrying off a child will secure her future. Some are unaware of the physical and psychological health risks."
