The girl who said no to FGM

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.
