Female Genital Mutilation

The NSPCC should be congratulated for launching a helpline to help protect girls from female genital mutilation (FMG).

The helpline will not only be of great value to victims and those trying to help and protect them, but it should be a valuable source of learning about the nature and extent of the problem, which has until now remained largely hidden from view.

I hope the NSPCC will be able to make this learning available to others so that awareness and understanding grows.
