This week on The Happy Vagina podcast we are joined by award winning political activist and undefeated 'fanny defender' Nimco Ali OBE. A survivor of FGM here she teaches us all about how to be a campaigner - not a complainer!
Nimco Ali OBE is a British independent government adviser on tackling violence against women and girls, and author of What We're Told Not to Talk About - But We're Going to Anyway. Nimco Ali has spent her life campaigning to end female genital mutilation (FGM) and is a leading commentator in international media on the rights of girls and women - particularly surrounding FGM and surrounding issues. Everyone should be following Nimco and you can do so at @NimkoAli
