Bridget Woods - Blog 5: Interview with Nabila Nasir, Malaysian gender activist and International Development consultant

Post type: 
Blog post

Working at ARROW opened my eyes to the realities of women in many countries and contexts. I was often flooded with emotion after hearing stories, even without being able to relate to, or even fathom them. One such story was from Malaysian gender activist and International Development consultant, Nabila Nasir. As promised in my last blog, here I have asked Nabila some questions regarding FGM.

 Can you please describe your experiences with Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)?
