Book launch: Overcoming: My Fight Against FGM by Ann-Marie Wilson

Join Dr Ann-Marie Wilson to celebrate the launch of Overcoming: a story of calling, challenge and tenacity in her fight against FGM.

Hear Ann-Marie talk about the remarkable story of how following Jesus led her to joining and playing a significant part in the international fight against FGM and why she has written this book.

Across the world girls are subjected to Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) – often without consent.

Health issues, trauma and unfulfilled economic potential are just some of the costs to over 200 million cut women and girls. Annually, three million girls currently remain at risk of FGM.

This book addresses some of the origins of FGM, while also telling the story of one woman willing to sacrifice her comfortable, professional London life to help end its practice. Volunteering across 14 African countries, Ann-Marie Wilson trained in basic midwifery, ran a fistula rehabilitation project, and qualified in psychology and theology before launching her charity, 28 Too Many. Built on the voices of over 3,000 FGM survivors’ stories as well as meetings with heads of state and the Pope, the book offers an insight into how Ann-Marie leaned on her Christian faith in her darkest moments to continue to offer hope.

If you are moved by a battle against the odds for justice, this book will inspire and encourage you to keep fighting for what is right.
