Hi Jessica,

I wanted to connect you with an incredible Sudanese woman, Halima who wrote a powerful piece about female genital mutilation. It was posted in PulseWire, and then as a feature article in World Pulse. Here's the link for the article:

Halima is active on PulseWire, I encourage you to connect with her.

Be Well PulseWire sister!
