JAHA’S PROMISE

JAHA’S PROMISE tells the incredible story of one woman’s courage to confront an ongoing global taboo: female genital mutilation. Living in the US and as a survivor herself, Jaha Dukureh, (named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people) mounts a powerful campaign and returns to the Gambia to bring awareness and ultimately stop what is still being practiced in 30 countries and affects 200 million women worldwide.
