When she was six years old, Hibo Wardere was mutilated - she was cut. On that day, she became one of more than 200 million women and girls worldwide who have undergone Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). In this film, Hibo discusses the days leading up to being cut - the celebration and joy - and the days after - the pain, anger, and betrayal. ‘It was being butchered by the people you love the most that was the most hurtful thing.’
Now, one of Britain’s most prominent campaigners against FGM, Hibo is working with SafeHands to raise awareness about FGM and to protect the thousands of girls at risk of being cut in the UK today.
