FGM Survivors’ Memoirs: Call for Manuscripts

FGM Survivors' Memoirs: Call for Manuscripts

“They helped me to my feet, because from hip to toes there was nothing there. A void. I couldn’t stand. … I felt like my frame had been hacked in two.” These are Khady’s word in _Blood Stains. A Child of Africa Reclaims her Human Rights_, a memoir to support the eloquent words of Nimco Ali in her UK Department of International Development guest blog, “BBC’s ‘Casualty’ shows FGM for what it is — violence against girls and women.” See

Ali, like so many FGM survivors, emerges from silence to insist on girls’ right to protection. The more survivors speak out, the better.
