Using media to promote FGM abandonment

How can media be used to promote the abandonment of FGM? 

That was the question raised by AIDOS on September 28th when they organized an online talk with activists and journalist Charity Resian Nempaso, co-director of the film Against All Odds, and Mariya Taher, co-founder and US executive director of Sahiyo. Both use radio, video, reporting, and storytelling to tackle FGM. The webinar was  moderated by Céline Fabrequette. If you missed it you can watch it below. You can also find the webinar in French, on September 29th, here.

“The Community of Practice on Female Genital Mutilation” is part of the “Building Bridges between Africa and Europe to tackle FGM” project, supported by the “UNFPA-UNICEF Joint Programme on the Elimination of FGM”.
The project is coordinated by AIDOS in partnership with GAMS Belgium.
