FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION Resources & Signposting

Female Genital Mutilation is recognised internationally as a violation of the human rights of girls and women. It reflects deep-rooted inequality between the sexes, and constitutes an extreme form of discrimination against women. It is nearly always carried out on minors and is a violation of the rights of children. The practice also violates a person’s rights to health, security and physical integrity, the right to be free from torture and cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment, and the right to life when the procedure results in death.

At least 200 million women and girls have suffered FGM throughout the world. It affects newborn babies and children and is happening now in the UK. FGM is child abuse. Contact Freedom to find out more about their PSHE Association accredited lesson plans and professional training programme.
