On the sidelines of the 74th UNGA, MALA, There Is No Limit Foundation, and Kota Alliance hosted a panel event at the Center for Social Innovation. This event discussed and concentrated on strategies for the global eradication of female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C).
The panel also highlighted the commitment made worldwide to end the practice under SDG 5 – Achieve Gender Equality and Empower All Women and Girls. The panel was followed by a conversation about the importance of communities to be directly engaged in the fight to end FGM with the attendees, and the important role in preventing FGM and supporting survivors.
MALA is proud to mobilize our community and take a stand against this harmful practice, which affects women and girls worldwide. Stay tuned for more MALA programming at the UN in 2020!
