#President #Sirleaf of #Liberia is the first woman president in #Africa and she banned #fgm (In case youdon'tknowwhat FGM is... #Female #genital #mutilation ~ female #circumcision = where they cut young girls to keep them from enjoying sex. ~ Definitions taken from bayou sources: the "Female genital mutilation (FGM) includes procedures that intentionally alter or cause injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons. The procedure has no health benefits for girls and women. ... FGM is mostly carried out on young girls between infancy and age 15." ~ "Studies suggest that FGM is also likely to increase the risk of HIV infection as the same unsterilized instrument may be used on many different girls.” ... Female circumcision is “good” because it prevents women from having an orgasm. “Circumcision reduces excessive sexual desire.” ~ "The WHO, UNICEF and UNFPA issued a joint statement in 1997 defining FGM as "all procedures involving partial or total removal of the external female genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs whether for cultural or other non-therapeutic reasons"~ "Female genital cutting. Female genital cutting (FGC), sometimes called female circumcision or female genital mutilation, means piercing, cutting, removing, or sewing closed all or part of a girl's or woman's external genitals for no medical reason." ~ "Female genital mutilation (FGM), also known as female genital cutting and female circumcision, is the ritual cutting or removal of some or all of the external female genitalia. The practice is found in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, and within communities from countries in which FGM is common." ~ "FGM is practiced among some adherents of the Muslim, Christian, and Jewish faiths. FGM is also practiced among some animists, who believe in the existence of individual spirits and supernatural forces. It is erroneously linked to religion, is not particular to any religious faith, and predates Christianity and Islam." ~ "More than 200 million girls & women alive today have been cut in 30 countries in Africa, the Middle East & Asia where FGM is concentrated1. FGM is mostly carried out on young girls between infancy & age 15"

It's the last week of school holidays so we're filling it with all things fun! Yesterday was a long overdue visit to the zoo (we hadn't even seen the pandas Wang Wang & Funi yet 🙈 🐼) But the giraffes were among my favourites...there's just something about these majestic creatures that's so mesmerizing. How amazing would it be to see them in the wild! Like in our giraffe trio wall spot! Available in a range of sizes, our stickers are removable so you can take them on & off without leaving any sticky residue. Perfect for a room makeover or renters! . . . #mangoink #wallspot #walldot #removablewallsticker #giraffe #trio #inthewild #zoo #africa #animal #monochrome #circle #round #print #decal #homedecor #interiordesign #interiorinspo #roomstyling #wallprint #wallart #madeinsouthaustralia #southaustralianmade #australianmade #womeninbusiness

#Breakingnews The death toll of the double car bomb attacks that hit the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi on Tuesday has risen to more than 22, according to a medical source. "The reported death toll is in Al-Jalaa hospital alone. There are other cases that have been transferred to other hospitals and clinics in the city," Fadia Al-Barghathi, an official from the Information Office of Al-Jalaa Hospital in Benghazi, told Xinhua. Al-Barghathi confirmed that the hospital has so far received 22 bodies and 21 injured people. Two car bomb explosions hit Benghazi on Tuesday night. The first one exploded in front of a mosque as worshipers exited the mosque after night prayer. The second one exploded in the same location following the arrival of ambulances. #Libya #News #newsheadline #InternationalNews #Africa #aroundafrica #bombblast
