End Female Genital Cutting in Europe

Nearly 8,000 females a day are subjected to Female Genital Cutting (FGC) and its consequences (which include severe pain and bleeding, infections, shock and trauma, and even death). This inhumane practice takes place primarily in Africa, but evidence shows the occurrence of FGC in various European countries as well.

It is imperative that existing FGC directives be implemented in all European Union (EU) countries. It is not enough that survivors of FGC are given asylum in the EU; more assistance must be given. Better Health care access, data collection, and dialogues are needed.

Take action today and tell EU officials to adopt a definitive strategy on FGC.
Nearly 8,000 females a day are subjected to female genital cutting (FGC) and its horrible consequences. Evidence shows the occurrence of FGC in various European countries and it is absolutely imperative that existing FGC directives be implemented in all European Union (EU) countries.

It is not enough that survivors of FGC are given asylum in the EU; more assistance must be given. Better health care access, data collection, and dialogues are needed on this subject. I strongly urge the EU to adopt a definitive strategy to deal with treating this inhumane practice.
