As part of its community workshops, GAMS Belgium organises an activity for men to take a critical look at masculinities, so that they question female genital mutilation (FGM) and other forms of gender-based violence. Here’s a sneak peek at the 2020 edition of the “Men Speak Out” workshop.
Between October and November 2020, 76 experts from 44 organizations in 31 countries and 5 world regions gathered online to participate in multiple virtual stakeholder dialogue sessions in the run-up to the FGM Donors Working Group meeting on 16-17 November 2020. The online discussions focused on “Preventing and Responding to Female Genital Mutilation in Emergency and Humanitarian Contexts” with the explicit aim of providing a concrete set of recommendations for donors and key actors in the field.
Marking the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, ACCESS project partners call on the European Union and its Member States to ensure and sustain access to prevention, protection and support of migrant women facing GBV.
