FGM victim hopes to empower others at awareness event
by Emma Bartholomew
Until just one year ago Fatoumata Jatta had never discussed being a victim of female genital mutilation (FGM) with anyone.
But now the 33-year-old is set to share her experience of undergoing the brutal practice in public in a Question Time-style conference with the UK's leading campaigners that she has organised.
The debate at Apiary Studios in Hackney Road, Shoreditch, on June 4 aims to raise awareness about FGM, sometimes referred to as female circumcision, which involves the ritual removal of some or all of the external female genitalia.
