Fatou Diatta, also known as Sister Fa, is a rapper and artist fighting against Female Genital Mutilation in Senegal and Europe. She is also an active Ambassador of the European Network, raising her voice against FGM among stakeholders and decision-makers. The journalist Andrew Smith made a short documentary for Al Jazeera, tracing her story and her fight against this harmful traditional practice.
This powerful film is a much-needed insight into the inspiring work of Sister Fa, showing how she is shifting the narrative in her country on FGM. Of particular importance are the scenes showing how she enlists the youths of the nation, informing and empowering them to continue the work at grassroots level. This film is an important contribution to the debate and will be an invaluable tool to help promote Sister Fa’s work and raise awareness for the issue.
