Hilary writes: “In January 2014 the Guardian Newspaper is to launch a campaign to eradicate female genital mutilation
(FGM).  This will include not just reports about what is happening
right now, but also asking how FGM can be stopped  within a generation,
and what we can all do to make this happen.    In preparation for this
campaign, the Guardian is inviting people in Britain and around
the world to advise on how to abolish the practice forever.
This enquiry starts right here, today.”

UnCUT VOICES Press has suggested expanding efforts to set up university programs and courses for the interdisciplinary study of FGM. Already engaged in this endeavor are Dr. Pierre Foldes, the Global Alliance against FGM, the German GIZ, the University of Geneva, Prof. Charles-Henry Rochat and others. A second suggestion concerns the newly launched Clitoral Restoration Fund. Tax exemption is offered for donations through Healthy Tomorrow (Susan McLucas) in the USA; via FORWARD -Germany and Terre des Femmes in Germany.
