Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is a violent sexual assault of a high order of criminality at many levels. FGM is usually committed against female babies, children, or women, without consent. The claimed purpose of the crime of FGM is protection of personal property inasmuch as the female is considered to be a chatel or 'property' and the alleged "protection" of FGM is the curbing of female promiscuity since the vicious attack on the genitals damages many nerve endings thus destroying sexual pleasure and blunting libido. This is a crime equal to or greater than rape in its violence and consequences. It is a sinister conduct practiced all over the world in concealed places. The perpetrators of FGM are often performing the FGM violence on many victims and therefore the sentencing for FGM criminals should reflect the impact of the crime.
What is The RINJ Foundation
RINJ is an anti-rape foundation. The RINJ Foundation educates the public, social media providers and traditional media outlets about the perils of sexual violence, misogyny and rape culture. RINJ monitors and reports on actors who commit or order the commission of acts of sexual violence as a tactic of war to humiliate, dominate, instill fear in, disperse and/or forcibly relocate civilian members of a community or ethnic group; monitors and reports on global court proceedings related to rape / sexual assault crime; educates for a more learned and open discussion of the issues of rape and sexual assault; provides education, general information and study resources to prevent rape and to enhance the safety of the person; and overall seeks a higher adherence to safe community standards. RINJ seeks better criminal justice while advancing a rape-averse social conscience, eventually ending sexual violence crime.Learn more in our "about RINJ" section.
RINJ Sexual Assault Clinics (RSAC)
RSAC (RINJ Sexual Assault Clinics) are Nurse-led sexual assault clinics medically treating rape survivors in combat zones and sexual violence survivors in refugee camps Asia and Africa. RSACs in combat zones or refugee camps also perform rape kits and investigate & report the occurance of gender-based violence & sexual violence in war zones. New locations are planned including a mission to northern Pradeshs of India. Learn more about rape as a war crime.Learn more in our "RSAC" section.
Some of our current projects:
Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) Survivor reconstruction clinic.The RINJ Foundation is planning the integration of a major surgery (general anesthetic, over-night stay) clinic within one of its RSAC facilities, hoping to complete the project in or before 2017. Surgery will reverse some damage and mitigate the FGM side effects in most cases.Read more about Female Genital Mutilaton (FGM).
Rape Kits are used to gather forensic information about the sexual violence crime. The RINJ Foundation raises funds for the purchase of 'rape kits' (also known as physical evidence recovery kits [PERK]; sexual offence evidence collection [SOEC] kits) and/or the funding of rape kit testing. Medical professionals complete sexual assault forensic evidence kits which must be quickly tested with results sent to police & prosecutors.Learn more about the RINJ Rape Kit Program.
