Short clip on social media about FGM/C

February 10, 2019

The 6th of February 2019, I was on Dutch TV in the television program ‘Koffietijd!’. After the live broadcast on TV, the program made a short clip which they shared via social media. In this clip, I provide an answer to the question “What is Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting?” In my 1.5 minute answer (in Dutch), I explain that FGM/C is a traditional practice (and not a religious practice), I elaborate on the different types of FGM/C as well as the consequences of the practice for girls and women throughout their lives.

In the past week, this clip has been viewed over 12.000 times! You can watch it here:
