Female Genital Mutilation

Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is when the female genitals are cut or partly removed for non medical reasons.

Some of the reasons given for FGM include; protecting family honour, preserving tradition, ensuring a woman’s chastity, cleanliness and as a preparation for marriage. FGM has severe immediate and long term health consequences, it  has no religious justification and it is illegal in the UK.

If you are concerned about FGM happening to you or someone you know, you should speak with your school nurse, your GP or you can contact the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on 020 7008 1500 or visit their website at www.fco.gov.uk/fgm
