Nimco Ali on #GETLIPPY

Nimco Ali is a British Somali feminist and social activist.

She says, ‘It’s time to break the silence and save lives. Not talking about our bodies is killing us and we need it to stop.’ Nimco is co-founder of Daughters of Eve, a survivor-led organisation that has helped to transform the approach to ending female genital mutilation (FGM). She also is author of Rude: There is No Such Thing as Over-Sharing.

‘We need to make sure that information is available to women from specific ethnic minorities living with the consequences of FGM – at the moment it’s just not out there,’ she says.
