“That is how we raise our daughters”

Although the law explicitly prohibits female genital mutilation (FGM), in Egypt, the society is still divided on the issue. Having experienced FGM, some women in Egypt still support the procedure, while others have decided to protect their daughters from its perils. In this episode, we listen to two different opinions and ask mothers: will you let your daughter undergo the operation? Why?\r\n\r\nModeration & Production: Nahla Ashraf, Lina Shannak, Firyal Majdi, May Khaled \r\n\r\nInterview Partners: Alia & Reham (the names have been changed to protect privacy) \r\n\r\nTranslation of the transcript: Layal Iqdam (English), Katrin Schäfer (German)\r\n\r\nDubbing Artists: May Khaled, Firyal Majdi, Lina Shannak (English), Stella Landschein, Katrin Schäfer Sarah Skibbe (German)\r\n\r\nAswatona Podcast was created in the frame of the project “Our Voices”.
