WARNING: The content of this edition of Footsteps may be distressing to some readers. The main version of the edition contains line drawings showing the different types of female genital mutilation/cutting. We have produced an alternative version without these illustrations for more sensitive contexts.
There is much we can do to prevent and respond to sexual and gender-based violence in our communities. This includes building strong relationships between women and men, empowering women economically to make them less vulnerable and helping survivors of violence on their journey to healing.
