Daughters of Eve is a UK-based non profit organisation that works to protect girls and young women who are at risk from female genital mutilation (FGM). [1]

The organisation raises awareness of the practice of FGM, provides support and resources for women who have experienced FGM, and campaigns to eliminate FGM.

They have launched a successful e-petition to get the subject of FGM on the UK Government’s agenda. [2] The petition calls for the Home Office to draw up and implement a national strategy and action plan to eliminate FGM in the UK.

Daughters of Eve founders Leyla Hussein and Nimco Ali were named as two of Britain's most influential women in the BBC Woman's Hour power list 2014. [3]
