abandon the knife

‘I will never be cut’: Nancy and Gertrude are Kenyan girls about to face a brutal passage to womanhood.

Directed by Sara Nason, this documentary tells the story of two young members of the Pokot community in Kenya, who stood up to family and community to resist the traditional practice of female genital mutilation or cutting (FGM). The film looks at how their actions influenced other young women and their families, changing minds and attitudes about FGM.

Join Christian Aid on 29th November from 7-9pm at the CCA, Glasgow, for a screening of the documentary film followed by an expert panel discussion and Q&A exploring the issue.
