I had to dedicate a quick post to Fahma Mohamed, the 17-year old girl in the UK who is organizing against FGM using rap. She’s organized some 100 girls!
“Seventeen-year-old Fahma Mohamed tells how she and a group of Bristol schoolchildren Integrate Bristol – with the support of their teacher – took a stance against female genital mutilation (FGM) by singing and rapping about one of Britain’s darkest secrets. Around 24,000 girls in the UK are at risk of mutilation, according to anti-FGM campaign group Daughters of Eve .”
