ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS:
Part of the difficulty in recognising and addressing the problem in Ireland is the lack of awareness and the fact that the people needing services are often already excluded. They are women, they are children and very often they are migrants. Please, make sure to visit our FAQ section to debunk some of the most common misconceptions about FGM in Ireland and abroad.
We can end the practice of FGM in Ireland by 2030, but we need your help.
We are asking the Government to commit to the development and implementation of a National Action Plan on FGM in collaboration with state-bodies, civil society groups and affected communities.
This is a key recommendation of the National Steering Committee on FGM. We need a Government-led response that includes prevention and support.
For more information please visit our FAQ section.
Recently we hosted our first online discussion “Women Rising: The Global Fight to End FGM”.
Our panel of experts talked about FGM and we had the opportunity to hear from people with lived experience and the challenges in fighting it. We also talked about what you could do to help.
In case you’ve missed it, here’s a recording of the event. Watch FGM discussion now.
The more people who know about FGM – the greater chance we have of ending this practice in Ireland and abroad.
