NPR's Margot Adler reports on the story of Adelaide Abankwah. Abankwah is the second woman in U.S history to be granted political asylum because she feared she would be subjected to female genital mutilation if she returned to her native Ghana. Abankwah spoke out today for the first time since her release from a detention facility - where she spent two years and three months.
