A piece in The Independent. An extract:
Sajid Javid, the home secretary, said FGM “has no place in modern society”.
“It is repulsive, unethical and leaves victims with emotional and physical scars that last a lifetime,” he added.
“We have launched this important campaign to make it clear to everyone that the practice is illegal and has serious health consequences. I urge everyone to help protect girls at risk by spreading the messages.”
None of these points could not also be said of MGM – other than Javid not recognizing the need to protect boys “at risk”. THAT is “repulsive and unethical”.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1.00 – or even better, £1.00 or more, monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
