Zero Tolerance to FGM: Ifrah Ahmed

369 views

Ifrah Ahmed, Irish citizen from Somalia and a FGM survivor talks about female genital mutilation. FGM has been documented in certain parts of Africa, Asia and Middle East. It is now encountered in Europe as well. Most often, girls and women are taken to their countries of origin during school holidays where they are confronted with the pressure to be cut. The EU estimates 500,000 girls and women living in Europe are suffering with the lifelong consequences of female genital mutilation. And an estimated 180,000 girls in Europe are at risk of female genital mutilation each year. Let's offer them a future that is free from violence! Share, say your word, Zero Tolerance to Female Genital Mutilation. More info: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/gender-equality/gender-violence/eliminating-female-genital-mutilation/index_en.htm
