Today, IWHC is joining world leaders and NGO partners at the Girl Summit to commit to do all we can to end child marriage and female genital mutilation.
On July 22, IWHC staff will join activists, community leaders, civil society organizations (CSOs), governments, and international organizations in London for Girl Summit 2014 to discuss how to end two of the most pressing human rights violations of our time: child, early, and forced marriage and female genital mutilation (FGM).
In a new article published by Global Health Policy, IWHC President Françoise Girard argues that the commitments made by governments 20 years ago at the landmark International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) can and must be fully reflected in the post-2015 development agenda.
