The Wound Reveals the Cure

A Utah Model for Ending the Cycle of Sexual Mutilation
  • Jeannine Parvati Baker


Dominator societies inflict the greatest wounds on children during the perinatal and pubescent periods. Experiences at this age are deeply imprinted. Whether they are intact or mutilated, all members of a dominator society are affected by its cycle of war on infants and children. The sequelae of sexual abuse of males and females, whether by genital mutilation or otherwise, leaves distinct psychological wounds. There are, however, ways to heal those wounds in order to end the cycle of mutilation.
