#Leyla Hussein

LEYLA HUSSEIN grew up in a devout Muslim family and was genitally mutilated at the age of 7 in the name of Islam, even though this practice is not mentioned in the Quran. Since the birth of her daughter she has been fighting for physical integrity and sexual self-determination of Muslim women in fundamentalist countries, but also in Europe. She is committed to the fight for the right to a lustful sexuality for all women.

As a psychotherapist and social activist, Leyla now fights against female genital mutilation and spoke before the UN and the English Parliament to finally successfully change the situation of at-risk girls, not only in Africa but also in Europe.
