    Very informative and helpful, will definitely pass the link on to women from the communities.

    As the project manager of a charity that campaigns against FGM – we work with young people from practicing communities – I would like access to the unabridged version. Many thanks, Lisa

    This is an excellent resource – I am working as Midwife lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University and would like to be able to share the unabrideged version of the film with student midwives who are increasingly caring for women with FGM and thier families.

    I am doing a research document for college. I knew a little bit about FMG, I am still know nothing, I cannot understand this tradition. As woman broke my heart! I wonder if U.S. is applying the same law of UK?

    A recent article suggested many young females will go abroad this summer and come back minus some body parts. I came across the site whilst trying to ascertain how many prosecutions (if any) had taken place in the UK for inflicting this practice on British girls and young women. It is intriguing that it is supported and practiced by women who may have suffered through this culture themselves.

    I am a sociologist, previously a Senior Lecturer in Health and Social Care. Currently most of my work is around FGM, on which I am doing a lot of writing, research and active lobbying etc (please see http://hilaryburrage.com/tag/fgm/ ).

    Last year I set up – and continue to promote – an HM Government e-petition, No. 35313, to STOP Female Genital Mutilation (FGM / ‘cutting’) in Britain (for UK citizens and residents): http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/35313

    There is also an e-petition for everyone, everywhere to sign: UK Government: Enforce the UK law which forbids FGM (Female Genital so-called ‘Cutting’).

    I created and maintain the online #NoFGM Daily News, which carries reports of all items shared on Twitter that day about FGM – brings many organisations and developments into focus.

    Our Twitter account is @NoFGM1 and our tag is #NoFGM.

    Our Facebook page is #NoFGM – a crime against humanity and our website is NoFGM (UK) – http://www.nofgm.org.

    You can also find out more here: #NoFGM: A Listing For [UK] Action & References On Female Genital Mutilation – http://hilaryburrage.com/2012/06/25/nofgm-a-listing-for-uk-action-references-on-female-genital-mutilation/ – a collated (and growing) open-access list of organisations and reports for those who want to find the major aspects of the issue in one place.

    I would welcome the opportunity to be more in contact with the FGM Resource Group – have been particularly interested to read your work on estimated costs of FGM, which I believe may be a critical factor in helping to eradicate this desperate practice. Thank you
