Anti-FGM Superwoman / Educational Arpon

Anti-FGM Superwoman

As at 2016, more than 200 million women have suffered female genital mutilation (FGM). The United Nations has determined that FGM is a human rights violation.Due to this misguided custom, many girls are not even aware of FGM when they were circumcised.
We believe that education is an effective way to eliminate this absurd custom.
“Anti-FGM Superwoman” is an apron type teaching aid for primary school students. Flowers are designed to represent female external genitals, and these are attached to the aprons with Velcro. Tearing the Velcro to imitate the cutting effect and let them know the composition of and the inhumane injury caused by FGM.
