Handbook for Religious and Cultural Leaders Engaging Communities to End Female Genital Mutilation 

In 2001, FEMNET pioneered male involvement in ending violence against women through the Men to Men consultative meeting on gender-based violence (GBV), held in Kenya. The meeting culminated in the development of a plan of action, at regional and national levels. FEMNET is the host of the Men to Men Regional Network with membership in Kenya, Malawi, Zambia, Tanzania, Democratic Republic of Congo and Mali. Globally, FEMNET's role is recognized by other existing global initiatives that work with men in to end all forms of violence against women. The Men to Men strategy empowers men and boys to become advocates for gender equality and defenders of women's rights.

 

This publication is part a behaviour change communication tool intended to expand the engagement of men in religious and cultural institutions to reach out to their communities to eradicate Female Genital Mutilation - FGM in Meru and Tharaka. The publication clarifies some of the common myths and misconceptions that perpetuate FGM. It opens space for dialogue between religious, cultural leaders and members of the community and promotes alternative rite of passage.

 

The project offers important lessons which will be documented and used to expand and inform interventions that seek to end FGM. We hope to contribute to the body of knowledge in by developing materials and tools that will be translated and used in targeting religious and cultural leaders.
