Today, as part of our lead up to International Women’s Day, we’re handing the kikki.K Instagram and kikki.K blog platforms over to the super empowering, dedicated and inspiring Khadija Gbla.
Khadija is a proud feminist, an award-winning human rights activist and an inspirational speaker, on a mission to protect girls from female genital mutilation (FGM) and to support and empower survivors.

As part of our International Women’s Day spotlight on incredible women, we’d love to introduce you to the super strong and inspiring force of nature, Khadija Gbla. An African Australian human rights activist, Khadija is the definition of an empowered woman fighting for what she believes in and pushing for positive change around the world.
After coming from Gambia to Australia as a refugee at just 13 years of age, Khadija has experienced the sad truth of discrimination, racism, inequality and abuse many women face first-hand.
Now, she is not only a survivor but a passionate advocate for other women who have suffered the same, dedicating her life to helping young women around the world – campaigning against and raising awareness for Female Genital Mutilation (or FGM).

As World Pride Month draws to a close, we’ve been reminiscing the momentous events of late 2017 and early 2018, when Australia’s LGBTQI+ community were finally given the legal right to marry.
As our social feeds this month were coloured by rainbows celebrating pride, love and equality (as well as rainbows shared as symbols of love and care in windows all over the world as we manage or way through a global pandemic), our guests and team members reminded us of the joy, positivity and support we took to the world stage with kikki.K’s LGBTQI+ diversity and inclusion campaign of January 2018, More Love.
