O’Brien, O., Baldeh, F., Sivanandra, S., Brown, E. & O’May, F. (2016) MY Voice: A participatory action research project with men, women and young people on female genital mutilation (FGM) in Scotland [Report].
MY Voice is an innovative participatory action research project with affected communities on Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in Scotland. The project aims are to facilitate community engagement on FGM with women, men, young people and religious leaders, to enable their voices to be heard, and to contribute to the development of awareness-raising around FGM, as well as ensuring culturally appropriate services for Scotland. There have been multiple calls for greater community participation and leadership in the work on FGM in Scotland from those directly affected (see section 1.3). The findings from MY Voice can start to identify key issues and help determine ways in which community participation can be built in to the Scottish response to FGM more effectively.
