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 excised women the scientific knowledge I have studied and partly produced on FGC, reconstructive surgery and women’s sexual health. I seek to transmit information and knowledge to young girls that would help them to better understand their experiences, make them stronger, more confident and better at being themselves. Because this world needs them and 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.
