A Film Screening of Digital Stories About Female Genital Cutting
In honor of International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation, Sahiyo in partnership with StoryCenter will host a film screening from the Voices to End FGM/C digital storytelling collection on Friday, February 5th, 2021. Along with a viewing of these poignant stories, attendees will get the chance to hear from some of the storytellers themselves.
Join us for this screening of a revolutionary storytelling experience that brought storytellers from across the globe to share and heal from their experience of female genital mutilation/cutting. Come view these stories and become a part of the critical mass of voices who are calling for an end to this harmful form of gender-based violence.
This film screening is free and open to all, but Eventbrite registration is required to access the virtual event.
About the Project:
Voices to End FGM/C is mobilizing a critical mass of storytellers and activists from across the globe by bringing people together to share and heal from their experiences of female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C), connect and grow as leaders in their own communities, and create short videos calling for an end to this harmful practice.
“Participating in this storytelling process allowed me to be audacious, to heal, and to denounce the way in which women’s bodies are subjected to violence.. Sharing this process with other women was a beautiful process of collective empowerment that allowed us to be visible, while using our imagination, art, poetry, music, and colours.” –Storyteller Su Sun
