Friday, May 18, 2012


When Liberian journalist Mae Azango wrote an article about the taboo topic of female genital mutilation, she and her nine year-old daughter became the targets of multiple threats. Brooke talks to Mae about her reporting that forced the Liberian government to finally take a public position on the practice.

I wish you had video of Mae Azango talking, because she is just a trip. More power to her, what a wonderful feisty woman. I'm sorry that she has to fight so hard for basic human rights, but bless her feisty soul. And everyone else, get out of her way!
