A webinar on the importance of national education as a tool for prevention.

Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting affects over 200 million girls and women globally, with many more at risk of undergoing the harmful practice each year. FGM/C can cause lifelong physical, emotional, and psychological harm, yet the public is still lacking in understanding the global scope and severity of the issue. In fact, a multitude of misconceptions surround FGM/C.

We will hear from advocates and organizations on why and how FGM/C should be taught in schools and the power of public policy to make this a reality. This webinar is open to the public.
