Estimates suggest more than 50 small children in Britain are at risk of, or suffer, the grim cruelty of FGM every day. It leaves deep scars, physically and mentally, and it maims and kills. How much more pain must be inflicted on girls and babies before this practice is stopped? Who will accept responsibility for halting the horrors of FGM?
Will only a full moral panic about scandals of professional ’failure to care’ bring the barbarism of FGM to an end?
