    • Synopsis
    • This is the story of the extraordinary social transformation triggered by human rights education in Senegal.
      With help from the NGO known as Tostan, people in Senegal come to their own understanding of human rights and democracy, triggering a re-evaluation of their belief systems and ancient practices. Learning about their right to good healt leads a group of women to question the tradition of female genital cutting (FGC), previously thought to be enshrined in Islamic law.
