February 6th marks the International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).
It's an issue that affects thousands of women around the world and the East Midlands is no exception. The practice was first outlawed in 1985 but it's taken years to prosecute the perpetrators.
Awareness around FGM has increased, but activists say it's a 'secret crime' that some communities still view as a valuable tradition.
In effort to stop the cycle, a charity has launched a new campaign to get men to say no to FGM.
