#MenENDFGM is an online and offline platform that rallies men from all over the world to join the fight against Female Genital Mutilation and other harmful cultural practices. It strives to recognize the intersection between men and FGM through advocacy in policy as a sure way of attaining inclusivity in ending GBV. If you look keenly at the main reasons for FGM, they all point directly or indirectly to increasing marriageability. The question begs who are the potential husbands to marry these girls?
