Doing It! with Hannah Witton

This week, Hannah chats to Nimko Ali, who is the co-founder of The Five Foundation (the Africa-led Partnership To End FGM), and author of the book ‘What we’re told not to talk about (but we’re going to anyway)’. Nimko shares her own experience of FGM, and her work to end FGM worldwide by 2030. They talk about how Nimko’s new book came about, getting the balance between being honest and being safe, and look at how we define FGM. Finally, Hannah and Nimko explore why we need to invest our financial aid in women on the front line of these services.Nimko: https://twitter.com/nimkoali📝CHECK OUT THE SHOW NOTES 📝 https://doingitpodcast.co.uk ✨CONNECT WITH US ✨https://www.instagram.com/doingitpodcast https://twitter.com/doingitpodcast http://www.doingit👀WANT EARLY & AD-FREE ACCESS TO EPISODES?👀https://www.patreon.com/hannahwitton
