Breaking the Silence


It is estimated that more than 130 million women and girls alive today have been subjected to female genital mutilation (FGM).

This documentary reflects the successes and challenges in the campaign for the abandonment of female genital mutilation in Kenya, where it has been illegal for over 7 years. It looks specifically at the attitudes and issues around female genital mutilation in North Eastern Kenya, where communities still strongly support the practice and the law is of little consequence.
