MRS. GOUNDO’S DAUGHTER examines the issue of female genital excision through the Goundo family, immigrants from Mali who must convince an immigration judge that deporting them will lead to the genital mutilation of their 2-year-old daughter, a practice that 85% of women and girls in Mali are forced to adhere to.

Mrs. Goundo's Daughter
A film by Barbara Attie and Janet Goldwater
Mrs. Goundo is on a quest to keep her baby daughter healthy and whole. Having fled drought and ethnic conflict in their native Mali, Mrs.Goundo and her husband moved to Philadelphia to raise three children, including two year old Djenebou who holds natural citizenship having been born in the U.S. But the Goundos are at risk of deportation, as Mrs. Goundo has to convince a immigration judge that Djenebou will suffer genital excision if they are sent back to Mali. Hearing from both Malian activists fighting to end the practice and traditionalists who defend it, this film reveals the complexity and passion around protecting a daughter's future.
