The course provides support practitioners, advocates, and decision makers with knowledge and analytical skills to integrate gender and human rights perspectives in addressing FGM/C. Participants should be able to translate the gender analysis for the abandonment of FGM/C into respectful and culturally sensitive strategies appropriate to the environments in which they work.
This course includes the following modules:
Module 1: Defining the context of FGM/C
Module 2: Gender inequality, FGM/C and VAW/G
Module 3: Change agents and sources of resistance
Module 4: Gender and FGM/C programming
The course is intended for programme managers and practitioners from government and civil society organisations, the UN and other international organisations working to address FGM/C or who see opportunities to address FGM/C within their gender equality or elimination of VAWG programmes.
