The ActivistMy work signifies the quiet hidden struggle of women who have been tortured and my aim is to continue the dialogue, to educate, to implement laws globally and to provide outlets to help other women who are seeking Asylum and medical attention. As a survivor of the most horrendous act of betrayal, pain and ultimate child abuse of female genital mutilation, I still seek to share the story of those who have been forgotten. It is a pivotal story, unveiling man’s historic shame and serves as a catalyst for healing a wound that transcends the physical, a psychological wound – a scar of betrayal. It is a soul wound. It gives voice to 135 million women, worldwide, who have suffered female genital mutilation (FGM).
