Demand Justice for Ruth Berry Peal, FGM Survivor

Equality Now has just issued a Women’s Action - Equality Now calls on the government of Liberia to enact a law to protect women and girls from female genital mutilation (FGM) and ensure justice in the case of Ruth Berry Peal who was forcibly subjected to FGM. Equality Now is deeply concerned about FGM in Liberia conducted through secret societies that have wide-ranging influence and have also forcibly subjected women from non-FGM practicing communities, such as Ruth Berry Peal, to FGM. Please join Equality Now and call on the Liberian government to enact and enforce strong legislation against FGM; immediately cease the practice of issuing permits to FGM practitioners; and ensure justice for Ruth Berry Peal.
