FGM In England – Question It!


The answer is education, but overcoming the mindset of the mothers and older females involved will be an enormous hurdle.

Researching Reform

Welcome to another week.

New statistics released by NHS Digital on 5th December about the number of identified cases of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) suggest that whilst newly recorded cases of FGM have dropped slightly, the scale of cases identified is still cause for concern.

The research tells us that in the previous quarter, more than 1,060 cases in the UK were reported, including 20 cases where the procedure itself was undertaken.

Our question this week then, is just this: how can we further reduce the number of FGM cases?
