“FGM/C should have been a horrific practice of the past that we look at with disdain. Unfortunately, it is not. It is gender-based violence, a human rights violation, and child abuse. The conversation around FGM/C needs to operate from that lens, and as Somalia, it is well past the time to be coy around this topic. I joined the Network to centre the voices and experiences of survivors and to bring to the table stakeholders from Somalia institutions and impacted community members.”
