Islington leading the charge on eliminating Female Genital Mutilation
by Rory Brigstock-Barron
Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in Islington will be eliminated within a generation, if a borough wide offensive is successful.
The pledge was made by Islington Council's executive member for community safety Cllr Paul Convery at a zero-tolerance breakfast with FGM survivors, councillors, police, health workers, social care workers, education professionals, volunteers and members of the public last week.
The forum became a platform for discussion on the barbaric practice, which threatens almost 2,000 young girls in the borough, with 1,300 thought to be at serious risk.
