3. Learn about the fight against female circumcision

What: Interpreting Amália Rodrigues
Municipal Administration of Strassen, 1 Place Grande-Duchesse Charlotte, L-8041 Strassen - Google Maps
When: Several dates next week - info & times

A heavy topic for a weekend agenda, but an important one nonetheless. Every 11 seconds, a girl is circumcised in the world. The issues of female circumcision and gender-based violence are global. So, taking the time to raise awareness in countries where FGM is practiced, as well as in Luxembourg is just as important. The Follereau Luxembourg Foundation, in collaboration with the municipality of Strassen, is exhibiting photos by Thierry Winn during his travels to the foundation's projects in Mali. The pictures are accompanied by testimonies from girls, former circumcisers and various stakeholders in the fight against this practice.
