The Global Platform for Action to End FGM/C has joined forces with Girls Not Brides to call on the leaders of the Generation Equality Forum Action Coalition on Gender-based Violence (GBV) to commit to ending female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) and child, early and force marriage (CEFM). Both FGM/C and CEFM are forms of gender-based violence, and are violations of the human rights of women and girls. They are held in place by discriminatory gender stereotypes and norms that define the limits of a girl’s aspirations, and have devastating consequences and impacts across her life.
Sign-on to the joint letter campaign closed at midnight GMT on 25th November 2020, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.
An incredible 625 civil society organisations and 75 activists from across 79 countries raised their voices by signing the joint letter.
