The European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) and Vice-President of the European Commission Viviane Reding will launch and present a new EU-wide study on female genital mutilation (FGM) on 6 March in Brussels. The study will provide an overview of the situation concerning female genital mutilation in the 27 Member States and Croatia. Female genital mutilation is high on the agenda of gender equality policy makers in the EU. It should be: it is a form of gender-based violence that continues to be, also in Europe, one of the most brutal and most difficult to combat forms of violence against women and girls.
