#zeroFGM Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is a practice internationally recognised as a violation of women's human rights and as a form of child abuse, is thought to have affected 500,000 victims in the EU alone, and more than 125 million worldwide.
Khady Koita, President and Co-founder of the organisation "La Palabre", is a woman engaged in the fight against FGM. She explains in this clip why she committed to this fight and how the EU can support it.
To fight FGM, the European Commission will make full use of future EU funding to help prevent the practice; improve support for victims; support health practitioners, as well as national enforcement of anti-FGM laws; and improve protection under EU asylum rules for women at risk.
