GW Hosts Event on FGM: Celebrating Collective Efforts to Debunk Myths and Misconceptions

Please join the George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health (GW Milken Institute SPH), the Global Women’s PEACE Foundation, and RAHMA on Friday, October 26, from 6PM to 8PM as we honor the efforts of those working to educate, advocate, and end female genital cutting in the United States and worldwide.

Did you know that over a half million women and girls are at risk for or have undergone female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) here in the U.S. Many myths and misconceptions abound about FGM/C. Learn from key leaders in film, religion, legal, advocacy, education, medicine, and from women who have experienced FGM/C.

Space is limited. For more information, including a link to a webcast of the event, and to register please visit fgmredcarpet.eventbrite.com.
