Summary This Innocenti Insight examines the social dynamics of the abandonment of female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) in Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Senegal and the Sudan, and seeks to inform policies and programmes aimed at ending the practice. The experiences from the five countries documented in this Innocenti Insight provide evidence that the abandonment of FGM/C is possible when programmes and policies address the complex social dynamics associated with the practice and challenge established gender relationships and existing assumptions and stereotypes. This publication concludes with reflections on the remaining challenges of FGM/C abandonment and offers recommendations for future research and programme interventions.--Executive summary
