Taskforce created to combat genital mutilation
Federal Health Minister Tanya Plibersek has been appointed to lead a government taskforce aimed at preventing female genital mutilation.
There is no data on how widespread the practice is in Australia, but more than 120,000 migrant women here have suffered genital mutilation.
Ms Plibersek says one case of genital mutilation is one too many.
