Waris Dirie Wins The Women of the Year Campaigning Award For Her Work On FGM

Posted in: , ,

Waris Dirie came to my attention through her book, Desert Flower, an autobiography that highlights her life as a survivor of female genital mutilation (FGM). The book has since become a movie starring Liya Kebede, and Waris Dirie has continued to campaign tirelessly on the issue to save other young girls from the ordeal she went through.
