FGM (Female Genital Mutilation)

Female Genital Mutilation, or FGM, comprises all procedures involving the total, or partial, removal of the female genitalia, or any injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons.

FGM is considered a grave violation of the rights of girls and young women.

The practice of FGM is illegal in the UK, and it is also illegal to take girls who are British nationals or permanent residents of the UK abroad for FGM whether it is lawful or not in that country.  It is illegal to aid the practice of FGM, and it can carry a prison sentence of up to 14 years.
