Our Mission

We will strive to work for equal rights for Bohra women in all spheres of life. Specifically, on Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C), we all agree that the practice has no place in our lives and want it banned.

We were all drawn together on this platform:

  • Because we never spoke out earlier…
  • Because we were taught not to question matters of Religion, Tradition, Culture…
  • Because our sexuality, our emotions, our desires, our pains, our traumas do not seem to matter…
  • Because we should have control over our bodies, our sexuality, our lives...
  • Because we believe that we matter, we count and we make a difference…
  • Because we want change, we want an end to practices which are harmful to us…
  • Because we are humans and our human rights matter…
  • Because no one has any right to harm us, hurt us, cause us any pain, physical or psychological…
  • Because we believe we will, and we can, change the world…
