Wanted: First-hand Testimony By FGM Survivors, Activists And Campaigners
Can you help? My second book about female genital mutilation is very different from my first (a formal textbook). It focuses on the ‘human stories’ behind this harmful traditional practice. I aim to bring to a wider readership the realities of FGM, talking to people in communities, survivors, ‘rescuers’, opponents, campaigners (in the field or diaspora), anyone with direct FGM experience, women, men, older, younger. Please contact me for details. Anonymous, or I’ll try to feature your organisation, if you wish. Thank you!
Postscript: January 2016
Female Mutilation: the truth behind the horrifying global practice of female genital mutilation (New Holland Publishers, 2016) is now on sale. Massive thanks to the many people – survivors, family members, campaigners, concerned professionals – who helped to make this book possible.
