2 women make a disturbing topic easier to understand via decorated cupcakes. Yes, cupcakes.
This is an incredibly creative way to explain a very disturbing issue that affects at least 130 million women around the world.Trigger warning: discussion of female genital mutilation (FGM).
Well, it's safe to say I won't be able to look at cupcakes the same way for a while. And I'm actually fine with that because the experience this woman and at least 130 million others have gone through is something that shouldn't be mentally brushed aside.
Before you walk away from this video feeling depressed and like the world is a terrible place, check out this great story about a doctor who's helping victims of FGM recover from their trauma by providing them with reconstructive surgery. And you should also check out this cool campaign that some high schoolers made as part of an initiative to get FGM education in U.K. schools.
