Khadija Glba is an anti FGM campaigner, anti-domestic violence activist and cultural consultant.

She was just three years old when her family fled war and civil unrest in Sierra Leone for Gambia, before they attained refugee status in Australia in 2001.

While Khadija was volunteering for a charity in South Australia called Women’s Health Statewide, she discovered she was a survivor of female genital mutilation (FGM).

Since then, Khadija has campaigned to abolish FGM in Australia and established, No FGM Australia, a non-government organisation that provides cultural competency training for medical professionals and social workers.

As a domestic violence survivor from a culturally and linguistically diverse background, Khadija is also passionate about educating and amplifying the voices of women that may experience multiple forms of oppression.

Khadija is based in South Australia.

Domestic violence affects all women, regardless of their background...so it’s great for women that look like me to see themselves reflected in that conversation around domestic violence and its impact.
