Desert Flower story boards

Below are some of the story boards class Emnet created about the Waris Dirie story - Desert Flower.

We were covering the issue of Gender in Religion class and we watched this film to see how one woman fought against the harsh 3000 year old African tradition of female gender mutilation (FGM) and how she became an activist to permanently abolish this rite of passage to womanhood.

Afterwards class Emnet got into groups and made a story board of Waris's life and then wrote a film review for their blogs.

Well done girls.
