Female Genital Mutilation
Broadcast Date: 
June 23, 2019

DC for Statehood had a very exciting week and we will share what all the excitement is about!  Also, Maria attended a conference at the United Nations entitled, "Reaching Higher Standards of Health and Well-Being through Cultural Engagement, Empowerment & Inclusion." She attended this because one of the presenters is an Ambassador from the country of Sierra Leone.  UNICEF reports that this country has a 90% compliance rate with Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and this is the topic of Maria's dissertation for her Ph.D. in Media Psychology.  Maria met the Ambassador and spoke with her about Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).
