FGM Parties In The UK: Manchester Female Genital Mutilation On The Rise In England

Girls across England have reportedly been taking part in genital mutilation parties. In particular, African midwives are being flown to England to perform the illegal practice, referred to as FGM, on young girls, a charity group in Leeds called Black Health Initiative told BBC News in a Tuesday report.

“We know of parties happening here in England, and in West Yorkshire we recently had to break one up, and we’ve stopped another from taking place,” said Heather Nelson, Chief Executive of the Black Health Initiative. “What we’re finding now is that where once girls were taken abroad to be cut, specialist midwives are now flown over and several girls are cut at the same time, which then leads to a celebration.”
