This is the 1st criminal conviction for #FGM in UK since it was criminalized in 1985. I support banning & fighting FGM everywhere. I have to ask why it’s a mother who is 1st to be convicted & not doctor/practitioner/others who subject girls to this horror
After many failed attempts to prosecute FGM in the UK, a woman was convicted for inflicting FGM on her 3-year-old daughter. About time!
Finally, a UK conviction for this disgusting child abuse, which is lamentably widespread here (And please could those incapable of comparative judgment avoid derailing the thread with “Male circumcision is just as bad.” It may be bad but it’s not AS bad)
A woman who mutilated her three-year-old daughter has become the first person in the UK to be found guilty of female genital mutilation (FGM).
JUSTICE DONE, HISTORY MADE. A 37-year-old mother has become the first person ever to be found guilty of FGM in the UK.
Welcome someone convicted 34 years after FGM criminalised Don’t get carried away though 100,000 + victims in UK alone Cutters going unpunished Men of family blaming women International response patchy Trauma support for victims non-existent #EndFGM
A woman who mutilated her three year old daughter's genitals is the first person to be found guilty of FGM by UK courts. This sets an important precedent & deterrent that will hopefully make it safer for young girls to grow up with intact vaginas.
Finally. A prosecution. "BBC News - Mother guilty of FGM of daughter"
Today's first-ever #FGM conviction sends out the message that this vile form of child abuse will not be tolerated in our country. FGM is a serious problem in London and we must do all we can to protect our young girls from this abhorrent crime.
Yesterday I was at an anti-FGM symposium hosted by the Anti-FGM Network. On the same day, one of the first cases #FGM was being taken to court. Today, anti-FGM campaigners won in court for the first time. 💃🏽🕺🏽
