Survivors of FGM/C Speak Out

Louise Robertson

Four American survivors of Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C) break the culture of silence around the issue. These women, from diverse backgrounds, illustrate that FGM/C is not restricted to any one geography, religion, or socioeconomic class. In order to realize the UN Sustainable Development Goal of ending FGM/C by 2030, we need all hands on deck. Not only do more courageous survivors need to speak out, we need religious leaders, men and boys, health practitioners, and young people to join the global campaign.
