Stop FGC

This week’s featured script comes from the most recent DCFRN package, which focused on the distinctive health issues of women and girls in rural sub-Saharan Africa. It is an inspiring story of a community that – with the leadership of informed women – chose to stop the practice of female genital cutting. This script celebrates the 10th anniversary of the village’s action to protect their girls from the harmful results of the traditional practice. It also explains that more than 2,300 Senegalese communities have since joined the movement to stop female genital cutting.
