    Very brave of you Ifrah Ahmed to talk about your experience and personal pain to prevent this from happen to future generations. 👏🏻 No doubt something that no girl would have to go through.

    It’s so heart breaking to hear that women are mutilated for the family/father to get a higher dowry. 😞😢
    She is an amazing woman to tell her story!! Some people are created for a higher purpose and she is definitely one of them. I lived in Ireland for a couple of years and I found the Irish people being kind, respectful and genuinely good people in general. Thank you, Hozier for your great work and amazing musics. 💕

    She is so brave I fully understand every word she spoke about it.. It's 2020 and still people in my country Sudan who might considered educated do such a thing to their daughters, they might know they will suffer but they think society approval is more important.

    This podcast sends chills throughout my core and brings tears to my eyes! I’ve heard of FGM but wasn’t aware of the widespread cultural practice that still takes place today. I feel for these girls, young ladies and women who have endured this, against their will. My heart aches knowing the pain and traumatizing experience this has brought on so many females. Thank you for sharing this with us Ifrah, Andrew and Global Citizen! It has brought forth so much knowledge of FGM, that I’ll be paying closer attention to and assisting in spreading the awareness! ❤️

    It’s very sad to know that things like this are still happening in the world. Women are not only not allowed to enjoy or own their sexuality, they are treated as goods sold to the highest bidder. The story broke my heart!
    I think when people get educated these practices fade away gradually, so I hope that change is coming!

    Thank you Andrew for informing your fans about such important and difficult cases. It is impossible that such inhuman and brutal traditions still exist in our time. Thank you, Ifrah for your brave and frankness

    Wow wow wow. Honestly, when I first heard the topic (FGM - and all the trigger warnings on that topic) I was a bit hesitant to keep listening because while I absolutely agree that the topic needs to be talked about, I was concerned that it was going to be really graphic, draining and hard to get through and too focused on a lot of really heavy disturbing statistics as often these kinds of topic can be.
    But I am so glad I kept listening and that the conversation was led by a woman who is part of a culture where this happens and who has survived that, instead of being it a person outside of the culture where it can get a bit white savior-ish.
    And the fact that she came to Ireland as a refugee and then turned into this badass powerful activist who despite threats and being blackmailed, kept fighting to make change and Jesus Christ! so powerful.
    and when she said ""I can not carry my past with me." Wow. Very moving. Felt that in my heart.

    I have so much admiration for Hozier doing these podcasts without any air of pandering or trying to seem relevant. He's so genuine and gives her the respect she deserves and listens intently. Theres no judgement in his voice towards her and what she has been through. There are a lot of men who sadly aren't even able to talk about periods without becoming uncomfortable. His parents must be so proud.
