SiA Magazine is a safe forum for circumcised women all over the world to share knowledge, experiences, concerns and to celebrate ourselves, embrace our femininity, our bodies and sexuality. We engage with circumcised women of all races, nationalities, religious beliefs and cultural or traditional backgrounds.
Circumcision is a healthy, beautifying bodily practice that has religious and cultural meaning for men and women equally. Male and female circumcisions have different meanings for different societies and individuals. At SiA Magazine our focus is on female circumcision, which is always practiced alongside male circumcision in societies that recognize the equality of female power (matriarchy) and male power (patriarchy).
If you're a proud circumcised woman, whether Muslim or Christian or just believe in your traditional customs, SiA Magazine is for you! Click the Subscribe button or Contact Us and join this wonderful new global women's empowerment movement.
"Thursday, 24 October 2019 will mark a momentous day as the hearing of a landmark case begins. High Court of Kenya petition 244/2019 is challenging the constitutionality of laws and policies criminalizing female genital mutilation as it were, the petitioner – Dr Tatu Kamau saying the Prohibition of FGM Act 2011 denies women the right to be circumcised."
Western women condemn female circumcision as "mutilation", however more and more educated, wealthy, white European, American, Canadian, Australian, Scandinavian etc. women are "imitating" various forms of female circumcision and rebranding the procedures as "female genital cosmetic surgery". This SiA special focuses mainly on comparing white women's FGCS with WHO Types II Excision and III Infibulation, which are commonly referred to as the "African" types.
