This article investigates how both the similarities and differences between female circumcision and female genital cosmetic surgery are suggested through images. A visual framing analysis of 278 photographs, published in Swiss newspapers between 1983 and 2015, reveals that three major visual themes—procedure, instrument and people—can be found in both female circumcision and female genital cosmetic surgery, whereas a fourth one—protest—recurs only in depictions of female circumcision.

Dr. Jasmine Abdulcadir opened the first outpatient clinic for women and girls who have undergone Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting in Geneva. Reconstruction is not always the solution to this traumatic experience. Dr. Jasmine Abdulcadir’s first objective is to debunk myths, taboos and misconceptions around female sexuality, which can empower women in making informed decisions. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
The guide aims to be a practical support for those appointed to the task of estimating the risk of FGM in a region or a country within the EU.
Our research captures the impact of migration on FGM in the European Union and gives essential insights into the factors motivating or discouraging the practice. While we might observe changes in attitudes and differences in the types of FGM performed, the underlying cause, rooted in gender inequality, too often remains deeply embedded in societies.
This study develops a comparative overview of recent FGM(Female Genital Mutilation) court cases within the EU, as well as an exploratory survey of transnational movements in relation to FGM.
