NOTE: We posted an shorter version of this video earlier, but wanted to give you the information about what Marietou Diarra has done to change the practices she described in the first portion of the interview.

Marietou Diarra, a Senegalese woman, closed the panel with a powerful story of what her society calls "the tradition." She spoke in her native language of Wolof, translated by Melching. After a string of tragedies, Diarra's family and in-laws banded together to reject the procedure. Her entire village followed suit. She eventually helped to convince over 40 neighboring villages—through education and community deliberation—to abandon genital cutting.
