If you’re a teacher, have you ever noticed a girl acting differently after a long absence from school? They might be more withdrawn and have difficulty walking. Or perhaps you’ve worked or volunteered with girls in another field and have heard them talking about ‘becoming a woman soon’? Or that they’re ‘being prepared for marriage’? These instances could be signs that a girl has either suffered from, or is at risk of undergoing, FGM. Also known as ‘cutting’ or ‘female circumcision’, female genital mutilation is the alteration or removal of a female’s genitals for non-medical reasons. FGM is incredibly harmful. It’s illegal in the UK and considered to be child abuse.
- Explain FGM and the physical and mental health impacts
- Identify female children and teenagers who are at risk
