Wudad is a female and reproductive rights education program worker at Monash Health and a superhero as part of the Women’s Health in the South East (WHISE) campaign for sexual and reproductive health.
Her superpower is helping other health professionals better understand harmful traditional practices such as female genital cutting or circumcision (FGC), a cultural practice affecting women and girls in communities across the southeast. Wudad raises awareness and educates the community with the end goal of stopping these harmful practices.
Her role can be seen as a bridge between the culturally and linguistically diverse community and the mainstream health services and community, which is an important one.
