Susan McLucas, Founder and President of Healthy Tomorrow, joined us. Healthy Tomorrow is a US non-profit group based around Boston that supports the work of Sini SanumanS, which is dedicated to stopping female genital mutilation (FGM), also known as excision, in Mali and world-wide. Healthy Tomorrow gives talks, show videos, provide technical assistance and raise funds to help end excision in Mali.
In March of 2014 Healthy Tomorrow showed the film Moolaadé at Lesley University. It is a powerful story about a village being won over to the anti-FGM position by a feisty, non-conformist woman who stands up for her daughter and other girls. The movie, which is in Bambara the local language of Mali, was shown on TV in Mali for the first time.
Susan gave a presentation at the Ethical Society of Boston in October 2012. Here's her slide show and the discussion that followed. The video she showed can be seen here.
In March 2012, Susan McLucas and Wyoma did a presentation at the Community Church of Boston about the work of Sini Sanuman. To view the event click the following links:
Talk - Susan and Wyoma presenting work of Sini Sanuman.
At a summit on FGM and child marriage in London in 2014, the Obama administration announced it would conduct a major study into FGM to establish how many women are living with the consequences of FGM in the United States and how many girls are at risk. Find out more. The study is complete now and it shows more girls and women excised or at risk of being excised than had previously been thought: 500,000.
If you have questions or would like to get involved, contact Susan at email@example.com.
