EU must put an end to Female Genital Mutilation - once and for all!

Ahead of the vote in the European Parliament on an EU Strategy to put an end to female genital mutilation around the world, ECR Vice-Chair and vocal campaigner for ending Female Genital Mutilation around the world Assita Kanko asks the EU to increase its efforts to put an end to FGM.

On the initiative of the European Conservative & Reformists Group - the European Parliament’s highest decision-making body, the Conference of Presidents, agreed to vote on a resolution on an EU Strategy to put an end to Female Genital Mutilation around the World on 12th of February in Strasbourg.

Kanko said:

“There must be zero tolerance when it comes to the practice of Female Genital Mutilation. It is a crime against your body, your mind, and your physical autonomy. Through practical training, cooperation, information sharing, international diplomacy, and crucially through showing zero tolerance, the EU should aim to solve this issue at all levels of society.”
