I read this and watched the u- tube video to say it shocked me was an understatement… If it a tradition in another country then although I think it is a barbaric one and should be stopped that is not only for me to say.
If it carried out in my country of birth then I believe it is another matter and anyone caught carrying out this barbaric custom should be prosecuted…
The article below was taken directly from Feb 2017 ITV news.
A case of female genital mutilation (FGM) is either discovered or treated in England every hour, according to the analysis of NHS statistics by a charity.
Between April 2015 and March 2016, there were 8,656 times when women or girls attended doctors’ surgeries or hospitals and the problem was assessed – the equivalent of one every 61 minutes.
Did you know this barbarity was so prevalent in the UK?
I read the article on a blogging colleagues website whose name is Ellen Best and she can be found on https://ellenbest24.wordpress.com/2018/07/29/watch-right-of-passage-on-youtube-fgm/
This link below takes you to Ellen’s beautiful and poignant poem which really moved me.
Thank you for reading and watching and if it has touched you then please share far and wide x
