SF Down Town Comedy Theater presents comedy fundraising performances for Global Women Intact. The theater is located in the heart of San Francisco, our 30-seat comedy theater is a warm and friendly space located in the historic Union Square district.
Led by creative and executive Director, Sia Amma, Global Women Intact is a 501(c) 3 organization dedicated to the elimination of the inhumane practice of female circumcision (the removal of the clitoris), still practiced in some African countries. Through educational programs and negotiations with decision makers in African communities, Global Women Intact continues to speak out in hopes of preventing the painful, disfiguring, and unhealthy process of female circumcision for thousands, perhaps millions, of African girls.
Since government initiatives to end female circumcision in Africa have largely failed, Global Women Intact is committed to supporting this cause by developing educational programs, creating awareness, and generating funding through performance events to ultimately end the practice of female circumcision around the globe.
