Recently, I wrote about my trip to Mauritania, which was part of a four-country shoot for videos about local change-makers who are helping to turn the tide against female genital mutilation, or FGM.
I shot the footage for the series in all four countries – Mauritania, Burkina Faso, Senegal, and The Gambia – but the only video I edited was the one about Mauritania… so that’s the one I’m going to show you. 🙂
Here it is, in English:
(And here’s the French version.)
FGM is a subject I’ve cared about for many years, and I’m so happy I finally had a chance to work on a video about it. I’m even happier that the video’s message is a positive one rather than a downer.

A very nice video. Anything that can be done to end this harmful and awful practice as soon as possible is welcome. How many girls of the future are going to point the finger at us and blame us for not doing something about it sooner?
