Bradford group campaigns against female genital mutilation
by Chris Young
A new campaign group in Bradford will help raise awareness of the dangerous practice of female genital mutilation.
On Monday a group will come together to plan an awareness campaign in the city. It aims to educate both the communities in which FGM is still practiced, and the wider population – many of whom know little about the issue.
FGM, also known as female circumcision, is a common practice in many African countries, and because of migration is now becoming an issue the Western world.
