There's a feeling in the air that something important is about to happen. A celebration is under way for the girls who will soon become women in the eyes of their people: the Kuria in southern Kenya.

It's a rite of passage rooted in at least two thousand years of tradition. Some call it "circumcision", others: female genital mutilation, or FGM.

Whatever the name the reality is the same. Later that day, girls under the age of sixteen will have their clitorises cut out.

Every day, six thousand girls, many of them in sub-Saharan Africa, will endure procedures like this one.
