No FGM Australia

No FGM Australia is a not-for-profit organisation which aims to highlight the existence of FGM in Australia and abolish it. No FGM Australia aims to protect girls from being subjected to FGM, and to advocate for better support and empowerment of survivors of FGM.

No FGM Australia view FGM as child abuse, sexual abuse, domestic violence, grievous bodily harm, abuse of women and a violation of human rights. Through advocacy, No FGM Australia takes a lead role in State and Federal politics, to raise awareness of FGM as an Australian issue, influence legislation to help fund and support programs to protect girls at risk of FGM, and to support women who have survived the practice. We firmly believe that we must condemn the practice, not the people, and that all children deserve protection regardless of colour or background.
