This is the third and final part of Footsteps series based on the biblical idea of jubilee. In the Old Testament, the jubilee year was intended for the restoration of the Israelites’ relationships with God, one another and the land. In this edition, we look at a topic where restoration, justice and healing are urgently needed: sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV). There is much we can do both to prevent and respond to SGBV in our communities. This edition includes inspiring ideas from Paz y Esperanza in Latin America, who are empowering women economically to make them less vulnerable to SGBV. Features practical ways of helping survivors of SGBV on their journey to healing and what really works to end female genital mutilation/cutting.
