PMC Workshop on FGM with Ethiopian Muslim Leaders

August 14, 2007 • Africa, Ethiopia, News

I thought you would be interested in seeing a report from PMC-Ethiopia regarding a recently-completed workshop with Muslim leaders from the Afar region on the subject of FGM.

There is an excellent proclamation, starting on page 16 of the report, as well as summaries of the comments of the religious leaders. One of the most outspoken people at the workshop, who called for ending the practice of FGM, was the President of the Supreme Sharia Court of Afar region.

Best wishes,
