an evening with Nimco Ali in conversation with Emma Craigie

4th February 2016


How do we decide when we should speak out and when we should stay silent? When do we have the right to judge the cultural practices of others? Or if we speak from our own experience, how far are we prepared to sacrifice our own privacy?

The Evening Standard’s Fem Icon, Nimco Ali, co-founder of Daughters of Eve which supports survivors of female genital mutilation, is in conversation with the writer Emma Craigie, whose most recent novel, What Was Never Said, explores the issue of fgm in 21st century Bristol and Somalia.

Nimco Ali is a Red Magazine Woman of the Year, Woman’s Hour Power Lister and guest editor. She is a member of the board of the Women’s Equality Party.

Emma Craigie’s What Was Never Said ‘is an important, unsensational, beautifully written story that deserves to be read.’ Alex O’Connell, The Times
