In the Name of Your Daughter

11. marts 2018

To members of Jordemoderforeningen

I am writing on behalf of Canadian filmmaker Giselle Portenier to inform you of a special documentary screening event with special guests in Copenhagen. We are celebrating youth activism to end gender based violence, to protect sexual and reproductive health rights, and to end FGM.

We think this unprecedented event will be of interest to you and your colleagues at Jordemoderforeningen.

On Tuesday, March 20th CPH: Dox Festival will host the world premiere of In the Name of Your Daughter - a heartbreaking and heartwarming documentary about brave young girls standing up to end Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in Tanzania.

The film is attracting considerable excitement from leaders and global organizations because of it's unique focus on the voices of children fleeing FGM rather than on adult survivors. In The Name of Your Daughter is expected to play a pivotal role especially among youth.

It is appropriate for student audiences and has the support of The Global Media Campaign to End FGM.

We are delighted that Pernille Fenger of the UNFPA will be speaking at the event along with Tanzanian activist Rhobi Samwelly.

Thank you!
