FGM survivors recount horror of practice: ‘I was sobbing, it was brutal’

2020 Fellow Masooma Ranvali is a survivor of FGM and a powerful anti-FGM social activist. On March 15, 2020 she was interviewed by The Independent shortly after the non-governmental organization Equality Now warned that UNICEF data on global FGM rates underestimate the scale of the issue.

Masooma uses powerful storytelling to shed light on her own FGM experience in this expose on the true nature of this practice.
