Platform for Action towards the abandonment of female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C)
A matter of gender equality
The Donors Working Group on FGM/C (DWG) has, since 2001, brought together key governmental and intergovernmental organizations and foundations committed to supporting the abandonment of FGM/C. Thanks to the sharing and systematic analysis of experiences, we have reached a consensus on a common programmatic approach to support the abandonment of the practice and make a major difference for girls and women worldwide. This Platform for Action summarizes its elements. With relatively modest support and expanded partnerships for the application of this approach, FGM/C can be reduced significantly in the coming decade.
