"Like most Egyptian women, I was genitally mutilated," Ghada recounts. "My sisters and I were circumcised at the same time. My older sister bled a lot and suffered from the after-effects for a long time. Personally, I remember being terrified. I will never forget that day," says Ghada Abdel Raof, who comes from a village close to the city of Minya in Egypt.

Through the organization BLACD, Better Life Association for Comprehensive Development, Ghada is now involved in efforts to counteract FGM (Female Genital Mutilation).
