Suzanne Ouedraogo : “Our Scared Weapons of Pleasure”

Suzanne Ouedraogo is an artist from Burkina Faso who has used her art as a powerful message against the practice of female circumcision in Burkina Faso -

Our sacred weapons of pleasure
Are being destroyed by the day
Rendered useless
By our overseeing Lords and Ladies
Of ancestral descent.
