My Department regularly consults with women’s rights organisations and women in developing programming to tackle violence against women and girls (VAWG). Over the last few months, this has included several roundtables with representatives from diaspora communities in the UK and women’s rights organisations from across the world on FGM and other forms of VAWG, as well as meetings with representatives from the Gender and Development network and other women’s rights organisations.
