'Female genital mutilation is a barbaric attack on women's sexuality and autonomy. We must all - politicians clinicians community and religious leaders - join together to ensure that FGM is eradicated both in the UK and abroad. Female genital mutilation is a fundamental human rights issue with adverse health and social implications. Female genital mutilation violates the rights of girls and women to bodily integrity and results in perpetuating gender inequality.
It is vital that female genital mutilation laws are fully implemented and that governments agencies professionals and communities work together for the elimination of this practice.' Christine McCafferty in the Foreword 'Although the practice of FGM is illegal in the UK women who have experienced this are a part of contemporary British society and may therefore require the care of a midwife at some point in their lives. I am delighted to recommend this book to you and hope that it will equip you with the tools to continue to care for women with compassion and with confidence.' Dame Karlene Davis in her Foreword
