February 6 marks the tenth observance of the International Day of Zero Tolerance to Female Genital Mutilation, an internationally recognized day to foster awareness of the devastating effects of FGM/C and renew the call for the abandonment of this harmful traditional practice.
Join us for a live webchat discussion to commemorate the International Day of Zero Tolerance and post your questions online. This event will highlight successful efforts to address FGM/C, as well as to draw attention to the practice outside of Africa since it is known to also occur in the Middle East, Asia, Latin America, and Diaspora communities. The program will include a panel of experts and practitioners, as well as a discussion on programs and solutions to address this issue.
