A woman’s voice is such a strong weapon. No wonder her voice gets silenced more often. But, how do women find a collective voice to advocate or fight for better conditions? How do they all rise up to say enough is enough.
This online talk was an opportunity to deepen the discussions of the COP. It is an analysis of the challenges faced by actors in the field in order to provide solutions.
On December 2, 2021, AIDOS, GAMS Belgium and the End FGM EU Network will host the online closing conference of the International Stakeholders Dialogue (ISD) on “Gender Transformative Approaches to Ending FGM”.
For the law to be effective, it has to be implemented by the government, be respected by the citizens, and applied by the judicial bodies. Cultural settings or attitudes towards the law can impede implementation of an anti-FGM law.
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''.
This international stakeholder dialogue is organized by AIDOS, GAMS Belgium and the END FGM European Network. The dialogue is supported by the UNFPA-UNICEF Joint Programme on the Elimination of Female Genital Mutilation and Spotlight Initiative to eliminate violence against women and girls funded – project “Building bridges between Africa and Europe to tackle FGM”.
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?
In 2019 we shared information about legislation in different regions and also collectively addressed some of the strengths and weaknesses of anti-FGM laws. Today many countries have legislation criminalizing the practice of FGM.
