This week’s amazing woman Khadija Gbla is the executive director of NO FGM Australia. She campaigns to stop girls in Australia suffering fgm & to bring awareness to issue.
She bravely & honestly talks about her own experience of fgm; from the trauma of the act as a small child to the lasting effects it has had throughout her life. Gbla’s frank discussion of her struggles with her scars, loss of sensation & fgm’s impact on her pregnancy are essential. Fgm is still greatly misunderstood, it is so important for everyone to know the horror that is being inflicted upon children & the lifelong problems that ensue.
I admire Khadija’s determination to thrive & her drive to prevent others from enduring the same mutilatiom.
One thought on “Woman of the Week…”
Such an important issue to be tackling it’s horrifying to think it still goes on in this day and age!
