Study into female genital mutilation
Southern Daily Echo
Women in Southampton will be involved in first UK study to collect in-depth data on female genital mutilation (FGM) and its effects on young girls and women.
The research is being conducted by the University of Portsmouth to identify if girls in the Hampshire cities of Portsmouth and Southampton are vulnerable to FGM and will explore the impact of this practice on the lives of women who have undergone the procedure.
Sometimes called female circumcision, FGM involves the removal by force of all or part of the female genitalia.
