baadon, a call to action

baadon is a word of ‘Afar origin which refers to a very specific bell.

It is the bell that the kalluwale, the ‘Afar Pythia, rang to make contact with Kalluwan, the resounding Spirit, to utter her visions on the becoming of the community.

baadon is then a call to action, an invitation to each young excised woman to come into contact with her inner strength, draw resources from it to treat themselves and live, once again, fully, her Power.

Support baadon

Supporting baadon, means supporting a project giving young excised women their voices on the subject.

It also means participating in the first European collaborative platform on Female genital cutting.

Above all, it is a space of freedom and information on women’s sexual rights.

"baadon was born out of a desire to share. Share and make available to young women the scientific knowledges I have studied and partlyproduced on Female genital cutting, clitoral repairing surgery, women’s sexual health. I seek to transmit information and knowledges to young girls that can help them to better understand their experiences, make them stronger, more confident and better at being themselves. For this world needs them, their power !"

An 'Afar sociologist from Djibouti living in Paris, Saida Barkat Daoud is carrying out sociological research on the device for sexual mutilation surgery in France at EHESS within the IIAC.

Aminata BadjiGeneral Secretary

"There is no space in Paris where we can talk freely about the sexuality and health of young excised women. Nor do I recognize myself in the hyper victimized discourse on Female genital cutting. I also noted deficiencies concerning the clitoral surgery management, a lack of information on the quality of care, on the appropriateness of surgery. As there is nothing about this for us, I decided to create this digital information platform with Saida !"
