Whether it’s female genital mutilation (FGM) or domestic violence, young women are sadly victims of abuse all around the world.I’ve seen people go through these experiences and I think it’s time to do something about it, by helping to give these women a voice.My team and I have produced a short film with Fixers, which we hope will empower young women to speak out and get help.We want to make these subjects less of a taboo, so that people feel more able to talk about them.
Kei-Retta Farrell, Sheena Ramchurn and Taneisha Deans are helping me with this Fix.
