The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 051 – FGM

This episode comes with a TRIGGER WARNING.  I discuss female genital mutilation, how girls are put through this horrific abuse, and how we all need to be aware so more can be done to stop it.  I ask that you share this, share any social media on it, and share news articles you see.  Too few people are aware.

In this episode I talk about how we put images on social media that, whilst real photos, are not necessarily genuine representations of our lives as parents.  I compare and contrast images I have posted with how it looks to the outside world, with my knowledge of what was really going on.
