“African FGM Author Finds Herself Called to Activism”

“January 5, 2012

That African kid with a sand belly, as the author and activist Khady calls herself, dares the world to look at what it chooses to ignore – Female Genital Mutilation. Khady has come remarkably far from Thiès in Senegal to founding and serving as the president of an organization in Brussels called the European Network for the Prevention and Eradication of Harmful Traditional Practices, Euronet-FGM.

Her tireless motivation feeds on an experience of hurt poignantly told in the book, Blood Stains. A Child of Africa Reclaims Her Human Rights from UnCUT/VOICES Press in Frankfurt, Germany.”

These words open a new introduction to Khady’s remarkable memoir. To read more please see
