CUTAWAY: MARIE ARENA APPLAUDING AT THE END OF MRS DIALLO’S SPEECH AND TALKING WITH HER AFTER THE MEETING 9. MARIE ARENA (S&D MEP, BE) SAYING (FRENCH): “An international day enables us to spread awareness of female genital mutilation among European citizens. Today, many don’t know that this practice occurs in Europe. They are also unaware that it affects 140 million women worldwide.” So it enables us not only to shed light on this reality, this atrocity, but also to promote the measures that Europe can lead.” 10. CUTAWAY: AISSATOU DIALLO AND HER DAUGHTERS AND MARIE ARENA SHOWING THEIR SUPPORT FOR THE CAMPAIGN AGAINST FGM 11. MARIE ARENA (S&D MEP, BE) SAYING (FRENCH): “The first step to take would be to criminalise female genital mutilation all over Europe. We also have to improve access to information about the practice, including among medical professionals. Special attention should also be paid to protecting women seeking asylum to avoid them being returned to their home country where FGM is practised.” 10. CUTAWAY: AISSATOU DIALLO AND HER DAUGHTERS ATTENDING THE S&D GROUP MEETING
