The girl who said no to FGM        Video        G        17 March 2017

 

In a short edit

from The Guardian and Accidental Pictures'

feature documentary 'Jaha's Promise'

we follow the journey of Jaha Dukureh

from survivor of FGM and forced child marriage

to Time's 100 leader and FGM activist.

 

Confronting her past, her family,

her culture, her religion, country and its leaders,

Jaha became a lightning-rod for change in Gambia,

her work​ contributing​ to the eventual government ban

on FGM and child marriage.

Boston Globe > Big Picture

World's Most Dangerous Countries for Women        USA        July 20, 2011

 

Targeted violence against females,

dismal healthcare and desperate poverty

make Afghanistan

the world's most dangerous country

in which to be born a woman,

with Congo a close second

due to horrific levels of rape.

 

Pakistan, India and Somalia

ranked third, fourth and fifth,

respectively,

in the global survey

of perceptions of threats

ranging from domestic abuse

and economic discrimination

to female foeticide

(the destruction of a fetus in the uterus),

genital mutilation and acid attack.

 

A survey compiled

by the Thomson Reuters Foundation

to mark the launch of TrustLaw Woman*,

puts Afghanistan at the top of the list

of the most dangerous places

in the world for women.

 

TrustLaw asked 213 gender experts

from five contents to rank countries

by overall perceptions of danger

as well as by six categories of risk.

 

The risks consisted of health threats,

sexual violence, non-sexual violence,

cultural or religious factors,

lack of access to resources and trafficking.

 

The collection of images that follow

were provided by Reuters

to illustrate the dangers women face

in those 5 countries.

-- Paula Nelson

(*TrustLaw Woman is a website

aimed at providing free legal advice

for women’s' groups around the world.)
