Launch & Webinar: Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting: A Call for a Global Response

March 31, 2020 @ 8:00 am 9:30 am EDT

The U.S. End FGM/C Network , Equality Now, and the End FGM European Network are launching the report:

Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting: A Call for a Global Response

FGM/C is internationally recognized as a gross violation of human rights, a form of violence against women and girls, and a manifestation of gender inequality. However, there is a lack of general awareness concerning the extent to which FGM/C is truly a global issue which needs a global response. 

This report shines a spotlight on the presence of FGM/C in over 90 countries around the world. It highlights the need to act to end FGM/C without delay. It is a clarion call from survivors of FGM/C across cultures, communities, and countries to governments, the international community, and donors to recognize FGM/C as a global issue, requiring urgent global attention.
