Created for Key Stage 3 and 4 Citizenship and PSHE classes, these resources from ActionAid focus on dispelling myths around FGM. They also include powerful stories from those who have been affected by FGM and those who are working to eradicate it.
Female genital mutilation is often shrouded in secrecy and is potentially a difficult and sensitive topic to tackle in class. To support teachers, ActionAid has provided this set of resources in the following package:
- The facts and myths around FGM in a quiz-style slideshow
- Case studies including stories from both those affected by FGM and working to eradicate it
- Teacher notes to help you to get the most out of these resources.
