The Purple Chair Launch!
The Youth Ambassadors of the End FGM European Network created their very own YouTube Series about Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). And they launched it in May!
As already announced last year, the Youth Ambassadors realised it is hard to reach out to the younger generations. There is still a huge taboo surrounding FGM and they want to connect with other young people to share their ideas and knowledge on women’s health issues.
That's why they created The Purple Chair: a series of videos, created by youths and for youths, to educate especially the younger generations about Female Genital Mutilation. The videos will cover extremely important topics, such as the best ways to access support, women's body identity, domestic violence and how to talk about FGM.
The first video came out on Friday, 8 May and it was a great success!
The Series will accompany us through the Summer and until the beginning of October, with one video every two weeks.
You can watch the first episodes, starting with the first one:
