Bonino in Djibouti: genital mutilation, tragedy that also touches West

“Africa is not alone in bearing the scourge of female genital mutilation, the West does too, my country included. Italy has, for many years now, been among the countries most heavily engaged in ending this tragedy, adopting very severe legislation and working to keep the issue at the centre of EU discussions”, stated Minister Emma Bonino at the conference “For a Region Without FGM” held in Djibouti in coincidence with the International Day Against Female Genital Mutilation.
