    Irine and Moneka - El Bashra, Upper Egypt.
    Irine comes from a small Coptic village in Upper Egypt. She was circumcised one day after school, when she was 12 years old. She doesn’t have much memories of it, but says she’s still deeply traumatized by the violence of the event. She got married at a young age, and gave birth to six kids. Two of them died during the delivery. Consequences of FGM are indeed going way beyond psychological trauma, since obstetrical complications can occur to the victims, such as post-partum hemorrhage, need of episiotomy, tearing of the tissues or flesh, while the rate of death among new born babies is higher. After the birth of her first daughter, she had long discussions with her husband about FGM. «  He actually supported my choice, I think he understood it didn’t have anything to do with religion and could only arm Moneka. His family, however, didn’t accept our choice, and still pressure us today. »

    Umm Malek and Malek - Qalanfil, Delta of Egypt
    Umm Malek lives in a small muslim village in the Delta of Egypt. She got circumcised at 10 years old and remains profoundly scarred by the trauma of that day. «  You can easily forget what you’ve eaten on that day, or how the weather was. But you can’t forget the trauma, the pain… »
    Umm Malek is now fully conscient of the long term consequences of such practice on her mental health as well as in her married woman’s intimate life. «  What we tend to ignore is that many divorces happen because of that barbarian practice. Women and men become unsatisfied, it leads to a lot of frustration and anger. ». After giving birth to a daughter, she started attending awareness sessions lead by a local NGO in a nearby village. The consequences she was facing herself combined to these sessions convinced her for good that she couldn’t perpetrate that practice on her daughter. «  I simply couldn’t inflict such misery to my own daughter. I want her to be happily married. » At first, women of her village pressured her to circumcise Umm Malek, threatening that she would never get her daughter married if she didn’t. « But I took these women to the awareness sessions with me, and since then, five of them decided to not cut their daughters ! »

    Marsa and Barbara Anna -El Bashra, Upper Egypt
    Marsa also comes from a Coptic community, where circumcision is still widely spread. When she was inflicted with FGM at a young age, she suffered from severe bleeding, and had to remain in bed for more than a week. Complications such as infections, HIV or severe bleedings are common in such rurale areas where FGM is practiced with non sterilized razor blades or knives. Tales of women being told to sit in buckets of hot water to heal the wound is also regularly recalled, attesting of the absolute lack of medical attention these young girls receive.
    While growing up, Marsa couldn’t get rid of the trauma and the fear of that event. Thankfully, women in her village were slowly giving up on that tradition following the public discourses of the local priest taking position against that practice.

    Do’a and Baheda - Sandibis, Delta of Egypt
    Do’a comes from a particularly traditional muslim family and was also circumcised at a young age. «  Shortly after the birth of Baheda, I started attending awareness sessions in my village where we’d talk about reproductive health, women’s rights.. Some sessions also tackled the topic of circumcision, and some sheikhs attended it ! When they explained to us that it is absolutely not mentioned by the Quran, it was a revelation for us. Religion was our parents’ main argument for doing it! »
    In Egypt, where religion is particularly anchored in the social fabric of the country, religious leaders are an essential asset in the fight against the practice as they can counter the religious argument that is the most commonly used to perpetrate the practice.

    Maria and Anna - El Bersha, Upper Egypt.
    Maria got circumcised at 12 years old at the same time of her younger sister.
    "We never talked about it after that. We felt as if it was something slightly shameful but somehow normal. We thought we weren't allowed to cry about it, or express any pain."
    Just as many women of her village, maria got convinced by the local priest that the practice was abnormal. "As for our husbands, they were easily convinced as well. They quickly saw that all the women were abandoning the practice and they understood that it ha nothing to do with religion in any case. "

    Doaa and Shahid - Islamilia, northern Egypt
    « I was ten years old and my parents told me that a big party was organized for me at my grandmother’s house. I had no idea what was going on. » When arriving there, dozens of relatives were gathered, but her questions to her mother about the reason of that event were left unanswered. «  I remember that a friend of my parents came discreetly to me looking upset. He told me to run away while I could, that I should escape. I should have listened to him.. » Doaa remember very well the exact moment she got circumcised. The biggest pain remains seeing her mother ignoring her cries for help when a local barber took her clothes off and held a razor blade between her legs.
    It was only at university that she started exchanging about that practice for the first time with other women. And when she got married to a Palestinian man, she suddenly understood the abnormality of FGM. « I realized that Egypt was one of the only countries of the Middle-East to perpetrate such practice. My husband made me realize that most of the countries, including some countries following the Sharia, weren’t cutting their women. It was therefore naturally that we chose to protect Shahid from it. My family is still furious about it, but at least I have my family in law’s support. » Doaa is now a Humans Rights and Women’s Rights lawyer. Due to the severe breakdown on activists in Egypt, she can’t live with her daughter anymore for her protection.

    Fayza and Maha - Alexandria, Northern Egypt
    Fayza was married to a 45 years old man when she was barely 14 years old. She had been circumcised a few years before, without any explanations. Fayza being from an older generation, circumcision was seen as a normal practice, that couldn’t be objected.
    « The first time I ever heard about FGM was on the night of my wedding when undressing for my husband. I was discovering sexuality through the prism of my mutilation. » Only then did she realize that this practice was barbarian, and could have life-long consequences on her - and her couple.
    None of her daughters are therefore circumcised, despite the very strong social pressure that weighted on her, especially 30 years ago.
    When her daughter Maha gave birth to a young girl, she decided to follow her mother’s steps and refused to circumcise her baby girl. However, after a complicated divorce, her baby girl got taken away from her by her husband.
    She discovered years after, when she finally won her custody back, that he circumcised her against her will, when she was 13 years old.
    Fayza remains however hopeful «  Traditions are strong. Pressure is strong. But the new generation has enough cards in their hands to change things. They are the first ones to talk openly about it, and they have the capacity to generate change thanks to that. »

    Mariana, Yoanna and Febroina - Mallawi, Upper Egypt
    Mariana was circumcised on the same day as her sister and a dozen of young girls taken to the same house, one day after school. There, they were circumcised one after the other by a local da’ya (a village midwife). «  Everybody was screaming, some girls tried running away… It was absolutely awful, and we weren’t even told what was happening except that it was for our own good ! »
    But a decade ago, Father Aghethaton, the coptic priest of the village, started militating against that practice. Through preaches at the church, awareness sessions and discussions with the mothers of the village, he slowly started eradicating that practice. His successor is now following his path, while almost half of the women of that community has supposedly abandoned the practice. Social pressure and religious arguments are often the two main barriers to the eradication of FGM.
