Video: Fighting FGM in Senegal

Fatou Mandiang Diatta, also known as Sister Fa, is an award-winning Senegalese urban soul and hip-hop star who uses her music to campaign for human rights and for an end to female genital mutilation (FGM). She herself is a survivor of the painful, dangerous practice.

“I don’t consider myself a victim. I’m an FGM survivor,” says Sister Fa.
