Edna Adan: 'With my army of midwives, fewer girls will go through FGM'

(The Guardian) - Former first lady of Somalia warns that complacency and a lack of local intervention could cause a ‘slip back’ in the fight against female genital mutilation


A former first lady of Somalia has warned international aid agencies they need to speak directly to communities who practice Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) or risk ‘winning battles but losing the war’ on the practice.
Edna Adan says that despite a reduction in the numbers of young girls being cut in her homeland of Somaliland and in the wider Somali nation, things are ‘slipping back’.
