Womens Support Project

Working together to end FGM in Scotland

 Thu 15 June 2017, 09:30 – 16:00

This event is intended to raise awareness of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in Scotland and hear from community campaigners and local service providers about what progress has been made in tackling FGM, and what needs to happen to positively move forward. The day will be about sharing the work of Scottish and UK based African FGM community organisations.

Integrate UK from Bristol, will have prominent young activists speaking on the day. Hibo Wardere, an FGM activist and the Author of `Cut: One Woman`s Fight Against FGM in Britain Today` will add a personal and global dimension to it. Most importantly, Queen Margaret University Lecturer and Researcher, Oonagh O`Brien and Waverley Care FGM Network Coordinator, Fatou Baldeh, will be presenting their work on the recent peer research project ‘My Voice 2’. The project was centred around communities affected by FGM and helping to promote the end of this harmful and illegal practice in Scotland.

This free event is, for community members, campaigners, health service providers, social work, policy makers, law enforcers, trainers and practitioners. The spirit of the day is ‘to share knowledge and good practice also, to strengthen collaboration’. This event is supported by the Scottish Government`s Violence Against Women and Girls Fund and Edinburgh Child Protection Committee.
