Special Guest 

LUCY MASHUA, President and founder of Mashua's Voice for the Voiceless


Lucy Semeiyan Mashua is the Global Ambassador for fighting FGM (female genital mutilation) and standing up for women rights. She is also the president of Mashua Voice for the Voiceless International and she will be a panelist at the Desert Flower Movie Showing at Dock Cinema in Fort Worth. She has been an annual panelist for Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson's a World of Women for World Peace Annual Conference.  

  

Lucy Mashua comes from South Kenya, from a Maasai family.  At age of nine, she became a victim of female genital mutilation, at age of 12, she was sold to a 52-year old man, did escape from him - and dedicated herself already at age of 21 to the protection of girls from genital mutilation. Countless girls she helped to flee from this violence. Through much adversity she continued to fight for the most fundamental rights of women and children - especially the fight for an end of FGM. About these practices she says: "Every year, thousands of girls and women die from female genital mutilation - if this is not genocide, what is it then?" ... "I want to be a voice for the voiceless" Lucy claims and raises her voice - strong, consequent and imperturbable. Lucy Mashua is a global chairperson of a campaign to end FGM. 

 

Lucy is fluent in 15 African languages as well as English and speaks some French.  She graduated in 1998 from the International Central Management Institute and holds a degree in Hospitality and Public Service specializing in Communications (ICM exams are associated with Cambridge). She also did Human Rights Cause at Southern Methodist University SMU sponsored by Amnesty international USA in 2008 where she learned about the Troy Davis case. By the end of 1998, Lucy was the only Kenyan at the time to qualify as an international radio broadcaster with the Voice of America (VOA) radio.  She began her activism in 1999. 

 

Lucy has lived in ten African countries including Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Somalia, Sudan, Rwanda, Burundi, and the Democratic Republic of Congo engaging in social and political activism.
