“To bear a girl is to bear a problem.” – Stop the stupid proverbs!

11 Nov

A Somali saying everybody knows:

“To bear a girl is to bear a problem.”

It makes me furious. Women are the backbone of African society.

With my Desert Flower Foundation I fight against genital mutilation of young girls and help them to attend school and become strong women.

Please support my fight here.

To stop this misogynic nonsense.
