Face of Defiance

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Visit this portrait project featuring survivors of, and campaigners against, female genital mutilation (FGM) across the world.

Face of Defiance hopes to create a global consciousness to support the end of FGM.

The series of portraits is a collaboration between photographer Jason Ashwood, psychotherapist and global end-FGM activist Leyla Hussein, and The Girl Generation, the largest-ever collective of organisations (720+) working together to accelerate efforts to end FGM within a generation.
