Alimatu Dimonekene at International Women’s Day

Alimatu Dimonekene

Last Friday I had the privilege to meet Alimatu Dimonekene at my colleague Jennette Arnold OBE AM’s International Women’s Day event at City Hall.

Alimatu, who works at the Manor Gardens Centre, is a powerful speaker who shared her personal story of female genital mutilation and her campaign to eliminate it. It was a difficult though inspiring story to hear, and I am glad she shared it.
