Commissioner Jourová has announced that 2017 will be dedicated to focused actions combating violence against women, under the adage "Say no! Stop violence against women". Today, on the international day of zero tolerance for female genital mutilation, we publish the adopted "opinion on combatting female genital mutilation and other harmful practices" by the Advisory Committee on Equal Opportunities for Women and Men.
The opinion provides feedback to policy stakeholders at national and European level, through the proposal of specific actions and recommendations on combating female genital mutilation (FGM) and other harmful practices.
