Examining the Current State of Critical Intersections: Female Genital Mutilation/ Cutting and Social Oppressions

General Material
Published Date
October, 2023

This report from Sahiyo U.S. explores how different forms of oppression intersect to limit survivors’ access to resources, as well as how the work to end FGM/C is connected to other themes across the human experience. This report is the first of a series on this research and identifies current understandings of critical factors intersecting with FGM/C and outlines the gaps in our knowledge. The publication is organized around seven core themes that intersect with FGM/C: religion, climate change, feminism, race and racism, law and policy, queer gender and sexuality, and bodily autonomy.
