Khady advises FIM — Women’s Rights are Human Rights

„I work for GAMS,” Khady said as invited speaker at a meeting of FIM on September 14, 2012. “It stands for Groupe de Femmes contre les Mutilations sexuelles [Women’s Group against Sexual Mutilation]. So those seeking counseling know where we stand on this issue.” The question had been, how can advisors bring their clients to talk about this specific, taboo theme? In Germany, sensitivity and tact were writ so large that they sometimes inhibited discussion. “Often we don’t even have to ask,” Khady remarked. “Women come with a need to open up about their trauma.”
