Ending Female Genital Mutilation - Where Do We Stand in Europe?

Amnesty International


Extract from the publication


Almost five years ago, ten organisations of various sizes and approaches, speaking many African and European languages, came together in Brussels with the hope of bringing attention to the invisible women and girls living or arriving in Europe. The plight of women and girls who are at risk of female genital mutilation (FGM) or have been subjected to FGM is often unknown to the people who ought to know - their doctors, gynaecologists, midwives, teachers, social workers, asylum officers and policy makers.

Owing to its founding principles of gender equality and respect for fundamental rights, the European Union has the power to change this. So we gathered expertise from our partner organisations and women and girls who have lived through the practice. Together, we identified five areas (detailed on page 15) in which the EU could end FGM and protect women and girls. We raised support for action by engaging decisionmakers, holding events at national -and European levels, reaching out to the media and engaging the public.
