Half the Sky - Maggie's Story

This video complements the Half the Sky Movement’s mobile game, Family Choices. It tells the inspiring story of one Masaai family who cast aside community judgment and chose not to circumcise their daughters. The film focuses on Maggie, the second daughter who serves her community as a government health worker. Through the powerful example of this family, many other parents decided to abandon the harmful tradition of female circumcision and early marriage in favor of educating their daughters.
