Rhiannon Campbell makes work that empowers audiences to make positive change in their lives. Thorough and focused research underpins the work, and she is passionate about human rights. Female genital cutting (FGC) is the starting point for this project. FGC encompasses all procedures that involve partial or total removal of the external female genitalia or other injuries to the female genital organs. It is recognised globally as a violation of the human rights of girls and women. It reflects a deep-rooted inequality and discrimination against women. In the UK alone, currently, 137,000 women are living with FGC. To tackle this, she created Juno. It is a sanitary box subscription brand that collaborates with brands such as Lush Cosmetics and Graze to contribute their most popular products to the monthly boxes. Juno donates 25% of sales to the UK-based FORWARD Foundation to fight against FGC.
