14 COUNTRIES, 42 WOMEN – FROM PERIODS TO ORGASMS TO FGM. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS OVERSHARING

What do you do when you’re homeless and on your period? What does it feel like to have a poo following childbirth? How do we learn to love our bodies again after they’ve been abused? It’s rude. It’s improper. It’s disgusting. All justifications that leave women’s questions about their bodies unanswered. And activist Nimko Ali has had enough of it. Following her own experience of FGM and rebuilding her relationship with her body, this important book contains the true stories of women sharing what they’ve always been told is secret and shameful – from east London to Ethiopia, from pregnancy to menopause. This is a call to arms. This is a cry to reclaim the narrative around our fannies and to refuse the taboos that silent us
