I can't wait to see this movie written by and starring two of my favorite models. The late model and author, Katoucha Niane also fought for and led an extensive campaign before she died against female genital mutilation in her native Guinea and Senegal. These two women were courageous in their quest to end this horrid practice that scars and destroys the futures of many girls.
