The Cutting

 

 

During my most recent trip to Sierra Leone I was humbled to be invited to hear the stories of 7 women who had undergone Female Genital Mutilation.  They allowed me to record their stories in the video above.

The impact that this cultural practice has on their lives is immense even many years on.

Today, this international women’s day we celebrate the courage and bravery of these women who have undergone the ‘cutting’ and who now use their voices and stories to bring change for the next generation.
