Female genital mutilation a problem in NSW
The female genital mutilation of children is much more common in Australia and by Australians overseas than authorities can detect, NSW Community Services Minister Pru Goward says.
But toughening the law on this "hideous" crime is not an option, she says.
Instead, community engagement and education is needed to prevent more little girls being targeted, Ms Goward told ABC Radio on Thursday.
