How to Beat Female Genital Mutilation in Britain
by Ludovica Iaccino
The number of UK women and teenage girls subjected to female genital mutilation (FGM) has risen to 170,000 over the last decade, according to a report written by author and journalist Julie Bindel.
Bindel's report shows that many hospitals, schools and police in the UK lack specific training on FGM.
Since FGM is perceived as a taboo among affected communities, there is a great need to create safe spaces to talk about the practice and its prevention.
