On air to discuss the community-led movement to abandon female genital cutting (FGC), Molly was interviewed by NBC News Chief Affairs Correspondent Andrea Mitchell on her weekday news segment, Andrea Mitchell Reports.
Both Andrea and Molly were recently named two of the “150 Fearless Women in the World” by Newsweek. They will both be participating in Newsweek and The Daily Beast’s Women in the World Summit in New York City, which starts tomorrow. Alongside Tostan human rights activists Demba Diawara, Cheikh Diop, and Abdoulie Sidibeh, Molly will take the stage to address the necessity of engaging men in FGC abandonment work.
