What is female genital mutilation?

Female genital mutilation is the removal of tissue from any part of the female genitalia for cultural, religious or any other reasons without a medical basis.
The almost total loss of sensitivity is the main consequence for those affected, with the added psychological trauma. There are women who bleed to death or infection in the weeks after the intervention, since it is almost always done in a rudimentary way, by healers or older women, and not very orthodox tools such as crystals, knives or razor blades.

Free

Free. It is our goal, our goal. Just as free as Hayat is today thanks to his mother, Asha, who decided not to mutilate her daughter and thus stop a tradition that unfortunately continues today to be practiced in the world. There are many women who are still completely subject to men. Providing their bodies, the same ones that give life, being slaves of some traditions created by men for their own benefit. When Maggie Civantos, actress (The cable girls, Vis a vis), met Asha and her fight from Save to Girl Save a Generation against violence against women, she felt the call, the need to help. “It illuminated my heart with the impetuous need to contribute my granite, and I felt that it was the moment and the cause that would move me to fight insatiably for a slightly better world”. That began this journey that will culminate with the ambitious project of Save a Girl Save a Generation, build a shelter for girls in vulnerable situations.

Traveling photo exhibition

“I am free thanks to my mother.” Maggie could not get rid of the sentence she had heard from Hayat during that first coffee. Without missing a second, he called his friend Sergio Lardiez, photographer, and told him what was going on in his head. “Yes, Sergio, I want a nude photoshoot, with my mother and my grandmother, vindicating the naturalness of our body, our sexuality, the freedom we seek for these women.” Sergio was as excited as she was and they began to look for allies to make this a unique and powerful movement. Marta Hazas, Soraya Arnelas, Aura Garrido, Nerea Camacho, Cecilia Freire, Marta Larralde, Susana Córdoba, Lydia Bosch with her daughter Andrea Molina and Tamy Nsue (Sweet California) are some of the women who have already joined, and others are expected relevant women and media from the world of culture and interpretation. All of them will pose free for Sergio Lardiez, happy to take on this challenge that – hope – could materialize in a successful traveling exhibition in Spain and Latin America to raise funds. “In a time when women are represented as ambassadors of beauty and perfection, I thought it was important to remember that there is a different beauty, more real and authentic, not manipulated by advertising or anything,” says Sergio, who has decided to portray the beauty and freedom of these women without filters, or retouching, showing the natural beauty of all of them without the need for Photoshop.

Prevention and eradication of Female Genital Mutilation

“Do not cut off their dreams. Saving a girl is saving a generation “, is a project aimed at raising awareness and training for the prevention and eradication of female genital mutilation and other traditional practices that harm women.

It is carried out jointly by the NGO Save a Girl Save a Generation and Acción en Red, which have been collaborating for more than three years in different fields of activity with a population of African origin.

Its activity focuses on training in the prevention and eradication of FGM, with an intercultural and gender perspective, to professionals who deal with families from African and Asian countries, mainly health personnel practicing in Health Centers and Hospitals (doctors of family, gynecologists, pediatricians, nurses …), social workers, intercultural mediators and university students of similar careers.

Another fundamental part of the project focuses on training in sexual and reproductive health directed at women and men from African and Asian countries, and other learning, more specifically directed at women, carried out by African activists who are part of the coordination and project management. To this end, a working group called BATOU-Women-Femmes-Women has been set up, composed of European and African women from different countries and cultures, to reinforce work ties aimed at rejecting traditions that harm women and raise awareness in their rights of equality and freedom.

This project is co-financed by La Caixa.
