WeSpeakOut at the UN Human Rights Council meeting in Geneva

 

Masooma Ranalvi, Convenor of WeSpeakOut, and Durga Nandini of Change.org spoke on a panel about FGM/C in India today at the United Nations Human Rights Council meeting in Geneva.  They were invited by the Global Alliance Against Female Genital Mutilation to report on what is happening in India.
