The Italian NGO AIDOS has always put a lot of focus on communication in its work to promote the abandonment of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), in particular through training on the use of different types of media. These trainings aim to build the capacity of professionals to address the issue as well as to provide activists with the tools to speak with their own voices.
We have now come to the end of our thematic discussion on Law & FGM. It’s time to summarize these last weeks - what have we collectively learnt?
Legislation against FGM in North America: US and Canada

Every month, the CoP FGM published a press review with the latest news and tools on Female Genital Mutilation. Read the one for May 2021.
During the month of June the Community of Practice will discuss Intergenerational aspects of FGM!
The Community of Practice (www.copfgm.org) on FGM was first launched in February 2017. After 4 years of implementing the Community of Practice, GAMS Belgium wishes to evaluate the impact of the project and is therefore issuing the present call for consultancy.
The UNICEF (2020) technical note on Gender transformative programming to end FGM aims to help implement anti-FGM programmes that tackle root causes of gender inequality and redress the power dynamics and structures that serve to reinforce gender inequalities in societies.
In this webinar the speakers presented their projects and programmes aiming to involve men and boys in the work against FGM. We addressed the main opportunities and challenges of male involvement as a strategy to bring about the gender transformative change that is so urgently needed.
