mutilation name is rampant we are the country with the second highest rate of girls and women who are caught between ninety six percent and ninety eight percent of all women and girls in guinea have. the reason why fighting f.e.m. in the country is so difficult is that it crosses social barriers educated people according to children not educated people talking natural join poor people are cutting rich people are crowding christians are cutting muslims are cutting people who don't believe in any religion and i actually practicing religion and also cutting. girls are cut from one day of born to about anywhere between ten and eleven sometimes if it's later it's twelve thirteen fourteen so it's from one dad born usually from

6:31 am
of always wanted to be away ever since i was twelve i knew that i wanted to write this book. it's called small acts of freedom it's a family of three it's a memoir a story about three generations of thing over men who have lived life on their own don't i don't since sort of where the memories that i have of my father. he comes back sleeping in a wooden box with a bandage on his chest on the same spot where he used to lean my tiny head against him sleep listening to the rhythm of his heartbeat. my father is finally home. i don't understand how he can sleep amidst all this noise and crying. people are taking his name over and over again but he does not become.
6:32 am
the. classic fares or even in this. case. it was the first time i saw a woman in a book called and because i was stored that muslim. response to the back of my father that is responsible for the death of my father i took a knife that was there and i left to. go try and. my mother just caught on to me as he saw me coming she had no idea what i was going to do but when she noticed i think of how much hatred i had been having in my own heart. to.
6:33 am
push me there has been. the countries i've been fighting the world but it's just me and it's divided us to such a great extent we have to face so much violence and damages and that so many people like me so many young paying the price for this kind of hatred on both sides of the water. i i. i. i i. heard she said over me. happens every day where soldiers from the pakistanis dangers and the soldiers from the indian side they shake hands and then this is
6:34 am
a demonstration no far on who's more powerful. was. there just to be. across the gate the crowd look the same to my ears but the same color for speaking the same language. police that me as citizens of human beings can do is and the hatred that's in our heart and cross that fire metaphorically. even. i grow up and i'm small it's less which is close to cusp and see.
6:35 am
what i get homesick. the only thing that makes me feel home and happy is just going to nature climbing the tree going to mount an hour walking the c.s.i. just reminds me of home. our kitchen in the village are designed for women it's shorter because women are shorter than men so. i remember i used to say to my brother i know this is short for you but there is a chair said alan and washed the dishes so that shows that i started my feminist movement my feminist revolution from my kitchen. that is important for women we have to start. being a rebel. in our house. in
6:36 am
our village we didn't have toilet in our house we had outhouse. and in the darkness we had to go out. my mother used to say that the darkness is a monster a shake less black demon that feeds on your fear. if you are scared of it then the shadow grows bigger and it will envelop you and swallow you whole. open your eyes wide as wide as possible she did me when i was a young girl stare into the darkness and the shadows will disappear never be afraid of the darkness but stare down. my father he has stopped talking to me he doesn't support me the things that i am against islam against my own country and the chain my country but i think these are all
6:37 am
happening just because you know the governor really brainwashed. people like my father otherwise my father loves me. it was just weeks before the controversial election two thousand and nine my car got the wind allies in iraq and two of my journalistic car was under my vehicle so that was a message for me that you know it's going to happen to you as was so i decided just you know leave the country. now i am here and i'm not going to keep silent. this is the room that i was moving. when i was cut.
6:38 am
so i would like conversations and some get. this thing that is really close to. really. really. being that. there would be. a path. so i wanted to run away. but they come we walk outside the courtyard. and then we lined up with my cousins and others. and i would take the long walk.
6:39 am
i can't see what they're doing but that has this moment where in the movement where i'm just you know i've. been. in a. i describe it and i. imagine when you're open in that because the part that slowness of opening there's a part. of the way i feel like little is just. and then i.
6:40 am
walk to flicker so i know it was ok. to have i'm. not eating my food. and my. poor quality law took to if he only thinks he's a good try he said. to have offended more times he son t. o. my stuff is in my interest to let you know support practice may kill so. less. and less there's also psychs using. your goober again. he's a bigger song on. the move. today. d.v.m.
6:41 am
pulls all songs on. the good outcome be nice is in there. it. doesn't stop it from. the clovis cause to my i was always end up like a fun ride dog and i would write story then i would interact with people and just slowly ever came out of these into fog things though you have became part of the online movement going for. social media is that platform when i can be out to be heard because just so many people are members from uganda and i'm strange then look at the numbers i'm quite surprised but i also understand
6:42 am
that a lot of responsibility. when we saw that campaign somebody well the rightwing mostly picked up one thought card from my video to make a point that i am an anti national. human being and i have anti
6:43 am
national tendencies because i asked for peace with pakistan. is good to have called a young student of mideast freedom college was ignited a fiery debate on social media and beyond on nationalism and free speech or tried many at the time was the belief that won't be cured up giving the kid to pakistan. she wants peace with pakistan and she gets softer the wording became national news after van was on every single prime time and it was a very very very scary time my phone was hard because of a so many messages coming back to back. and the strangest thing is they were all messages of hate messages of. messages of how somebody would want to. post me. how somebody would go very very explicit messages of how one would want to have my limbs the fire and how they would want to read me you know who these people are well the big call you up to thread renewal was it on social media you were part of
6:44 am
you have reported this to the police not the whole coming to you when it should be do you already it's also your reader whether somebody's calling you. a definite sound again these are you you're feeling good late because you don't see the time just one person saying it to you but you can go to the police and report it you are it's it's one hundred different account it's one hundred different people saying that to you and that gets to you a thing how strong you are that kind of be treated in that volume has has a way of getting into. i launched myself a free them but after three years it was everywhere so like the president of iran
6:45 am
knew about it talked about it with all the media around the war the media inside iran the rein in the state t.v. clerics and i thought oh my god now this is the time we have to shift the auline movement to something off line these people need to identify each other so in two thousand and seventeen i decided to actually you know pick a day pick a color and help these people to identify each other in public. these women in white ones they say they are the only soldiers only warriors i called it one person the inspiration because they. never have. permission to take this. they will be shot they will be you know into prison they will be torture but they are brave they found
6:46 am
a way to protest against oppression. and listen to those then the amount of. time in most of. it on the. back end is that you can see them of the dude in the sun and. that you know i'm going to need tires the are. not let's get it out. i said not what i say by. how our money. this is the time men should get involved in women's movement so i created another campaign called the many.
6:47 am
the government and all want to control the society because they know that this generation is not going to keep signing. their rituals. are being lined up when they're actually being those rituals come from the past and it is. something that people are continuing.
6:48 am
to. change. and. when we are doing is to remove the secrecy around the cutting so we want people to be able to understand it so that they understand that one you know the cutting is
6:49 am
not necessary so we are doing alternative rites of passage. because what the community showed us was how de used to celebrate the girls but den it will end with the cutting and what we are trying to do with that is to teach them that you can still send a bridge girls you can still celebrate exhibition but you don't need to do the cutting. when we're doing a dance we use social media to tell people where we are going to be. the young people go. away and talk about how we are talking about.
6:50 am
this. with. the you know the moment. that i used to go out on a. lot of. we are slowly you know. when we've got people saying that you make the. most of that is. by me you get the oil by you know all where are they going to. get to where. they had us the.
6:51 am
last poll and i sort of. i mean. you know that's united. because i want to. i'm i had a community. when i lay there were. those that i was that i mean and i'm one of the . more it and it got me knowing that. most of. you do and a lot of these. knowing.
6:52 am
that it's what i want to but again i don't need it just call them beloved list come on a set of people don't be done but i don't decide if it will. be them and. i mean it doesn't but i'm. just. i've got. no question about you know actually go oh yeah. that's what i was. so i don't honestly i was that you know it's either choose to believe i mean it's not a good thing i'm someone to tell those who don't buy a shit for the shit that i'm on the show that i need to do or not do the show live on yet i've shot realize this is a bulldozer to stop then they come out of my own car about it to get a lot of them were going to say look you know. like this is
6:53 am
a big show action in this show i give the platform to women inside iraq i mean mostly women it's about you know people inside iran who can use their camera and be their own voices be they only media on sunday video to link. i feel like i'm holding the whole iran you know they picked out from my country but they couldn't take iran out of me so now social media and this show is my window toward iran. going to show the shop does the show of course i am scared of receiving a lot of death threat especially when i see the government attack me through cyber army calling me a prostitute calling me ugly the agent of cia agent and my six this kind of things actually from the beginning it was kind of hurting me but not now not anymore.
6:54 am
this is has already. maybe. i. am i come here in my happy times to crying god for everything good that has happened but i also come here whenever i'm sad whenever i need help whenever i feel so hopeless that after reach out to something greater than me.
6:55 am
life has changed a lot and now i'm going to be a public figure people who know me by my face by my walk just give me strength that i can take this position of influence this position where so many people are looking at me and listening to what after say for years give me strength still so that i can give the best to the word the best to mankind. perhaps so many train bad the biggest one is one day one many wrong have the power to run the country. my dream is just to see what men are
