    Jaha's Promise

    Join Safe Hands for Girls, The Afiya Center, the Texas Equal Access Fund and NARAL Pro-Choice Texas for a film screening and discussion on Wednesday, April 26th at the Texas Theater.

    Jaha's Promise: A strong story about an even stronger woman, who confronts a global taboo: female genital mutilation and forced marriage.

    Like most other girls in Gambia, Jaha Dukureh was circumcised when she was very young. Her marriage was arranged when she was eight, and as a 15-year-old she got married to a 40-year-old man in New York. 'Jaha's Promise' is a touching story about a young girl's struggle to take control of her own body, and about having the courage to confront her father, the politicians and the community that surrounds her. An extremely important political document in a world where over 200 million women live with the devastating consequences of female genital mutilation, which is still being practised in 30 countries. The story of Jaha is thus the story about the suffering of countless other women – and about one woman's courage to confront a global taboo, which like few other topics divides people's opinions. A strong film about an even stronger woman, and an experience that lingers on long after you have left the cinema.
