Wednesday host Lilada Gee speaks with the Kenyan women’s rights campaigner, Josephine Kulea. Ms. Kulea grew up among the Samburu people in Kenya, and she escaped female genital mutilation and forced marriage as a child. Now, she’s fighting against these injustices, and is founder of the Samburu Girls Foundation, which has saved more than 1,000 girls from similar practices. Here, her and Lilada talk about her story and the Samburu tradition of “beading.”
