Cascading Efforts Towards Ending FGM in Kenya

Eva Komba: ''In my country, Kenya, the anti-FGM legislation is central in the response to the challenge of FGM. The law was supported by the establishment of the Anti-Female Genital Mutilation Board which gathers a wide range of police powers''.

Men and our duty to speak up against FGM

Modou Lamin Davies: "Growing up in my community, I learnt to catcall women. Sometimes, adult men would send me to tell off women who ignored their advances or refused to obey their instructions. I remember thinking how strange it was to learn that at such an age. However, transitioning from primary to junior school I learnt more about masculinity and expectations on young adolescents."
