Breaking the Cycle: Eradicating Female Genital Mutilation in the UK

When: 12:00- 1:00 p.m.

Where: WCC 3016

Please join us for a brown bag discussion with Leyla Hussein, a leading activist in efforts to eradicate FGM in the UK. Her successful e-petition Stop FGM in the UK Now triggered a UK Home Affairs Committee inquiry in 2014 resulting in important changes in the government’s approach to tackling FGM. A qualified psychotherapist, Leyla founded and runs the Dahlia Project, the only counselling service for FGM survivors in Europe. Leyla acts as advisor to the UK-wide Tackling FGM Initiative and is a senior consultant for the international The Girl Generation campaign.
