On April 23rd, API-GBV partnered with Sahiyo U.S. for Critical Intersections of FGM/C: The Value of Intersectionailty in Cross-Collaboration, a presentation of Sahiyo’s Mixed Methods Report as part of the survivor and activist-led Critical Intersections Research Project. This project examines the issue of female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) through an intersectional lens, with the goal of understanding both challenges that FGM/C survivors and activists face, as well as opportunities for cross-sector collaboration with other social justice movements. The report includes qualitative and quantitative data from over 100 individuals and organizations working within and beyond the FGM/C sphere. In hopes of facilitating meaningful discussion around collaboration and intersectional programming, this presentation focused heavily on challenges and opportunities to collaborative projects, with plenty of time for feedback and weigh in from the audience; turning data into action is our goal. Furthermore, as Sahiyo continues its exploration on this topic, we hope to expand our understanding with the insights of activists, frontline professionals, and more from across the board.
