FGM means female genital mutilation and is a ritual removal of some or all of the external female genitalia. It’s carried out by a circumciser who uses a razor to remove the genitalia with or without anaesthesia. It is conducted both on newborn girls and on teenagers, but most girls are cut before the age of five. FGM isn’t carried out only in African and Asian countries, but also in UK and among diaspora communities around the world. There aren’t known health benefits and dangers include severe bleeding, infections and complications in childbirth.
