Last Friday 25th November marked the beginning of INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR THE ELIMINATION OF VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN. Please spend the afternoon of the 3RD DECEMBER with us at Sistah Space. 2-5 or 6-9pm dinner and African film about Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). (Two showings and sittings)
MOOLADÈ IS SET IN WEST AFRICA AND CHARTS THE JOURNEY OF ONE WOMAN'S FIGHT TO SAVE SOME VILLAGE CHILDREN FROM THE TRADITION OF FGM.
THE STORY HIGHLIGHTS THIS OFTEN COMPULSORY TRADITION THAT INSISTS THAT YOUNG GIRLS AND WOMEN HAVE THEIR GENITAL ORGANS CUT TO ENSURE THAT THEY ARE 'APPEALING' TO MEN AND THEREFORE MARRIAGE MATERIA. SEXUAL ACTIVITIES ARE ALMOST ALWAYS AN AGONISING EXPERIENCE FOR THE WOMEN
WE SEE HOW WOMEN ARE OFTEN COMPLICATE IN THIS MALE DRIVEN, FREQUENTLY FATAL PRACTICE.
THIS WONDERFUL AND OFTEN HARROWING FEATURE FILM IS ABOUT STRUGGLES AND SUCCESS.
FGM is little known about in the African Caribbean community (it is not widely talked about) and we must change that. We have events celebrating Africa without acknowledging some of the issues our sistahs in the continent and here have to face. Sistah Space embraces everyone and everything.
This event is supported by
