Synopsis:

In this story of a brave woman who is exiled from her home due to constant warfare, Nura Abdi begins a process of self-consciousness during her exile that will lead her to acknowledge the brutal aggression she suffered when she was only a child. She is able to live at peace with herself and with the culture that surrounds her, in spite of her having been mutilated with unimaginable cruelty. She learns to survive at all costs because her mother and grandmother taught her she should never yield to anything or abase herself for anyone. This book is an energetic argument against the stigma of female genital mutilation, and a perfect example of cultural difference and the viability of integration.

 

En esta historia de una mujer valiente que se ve ahuyentada de su hogar por guerras sucesivas, Nura Abdi inicia un proceso de autoconciencia durante su exilio que le conducirá a asumir la brutal agresión a la que fue sometida cuando era sólo una niña. Logra vivir en paz consigo misma y con la cultura que la envuelve por más que haya sido mutilada con una crueldad de la que no era consciente. Aprende a sobrevivir a cualquier precio porque su madre y su abuela le enseñaron que no debía ceder ante nada ni humillarse ante nadie. Este libro constituye un enérgico alegato contra el estigma de la ablación sexual femenina, y es una demostración perfecta de las diferencias culturales y de la viabilidad de la integración.

About the Author: Nura Abdi emigrated to Kenya during her own African country's civil war. She was caught using a fake passport in Germany while trying to enter the United States and lived in the European country as a political refugee for years.
