So honoured to be at a Beti Utsav #celebration in #Delhi with these guys and @actionaiduk. We celebrated the birth of 10 beautiful baby girls in this community. Sadly, often daughters aren't valued as much as sons - so many girls are neglected or even aborted. #Actionaid are helping to change this by having Beti Utsav celebrations to celebrate the birth of baby girls, to show they're as loved and as valued as much as boys.

Massive thanks to Enter Shikari's Rou Reynolds for speaking up against FGM!

Yesterday was International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation. It's mental to think this is still practiced in many parts of the world. In Somalia for instance 98% of young girls have been 'cut'. It's great to be part of a big push of international pressure to consign this barbaric act to history once & for all.

If you want to know more about it, here's a blog I wrote back in 2014:
Stand in solidarity with women around the world to #endFGM
Join me & the great people at @ActionAid @bollockstopoverty @actionaiduk

“There seems huge pressure on girls my age to look a particular way, to “fit in” and be perceived as “acceptable”. It seems harder for girls to have their voices heard than boys.” Mia, 15, tells us why she stands for gender equality and #DayOfTheGirl. What do you stand for?
