The Evening Standard today runs a double spread on the practice of FGM in the UK featuring an interview with Nimco Ali, human rights and anti-FGM campaigner.
Nimco has done an extraordinary amount to raise awareness of and to prevent FGM. Her words in this interview resonate with every woman working for a safer world: "We wouldn't try to make torture safer - we'd try to stop it. The same applies to FGM."
Nimco is an inspiring and passionate speaker, and you can hear her at Feminism in London 2015 on the panel on non-state torture.
