Overview:

Female genital mutilation (FGM) has garnered significant media, political and legal attention in the UK. Despite criminalizing the practice in 1985, FGM continues undetected and often underground. This monograph provides a unique insight into survivors' attitudes towards FGM as well as the criminalization of a culturally embedded practice.

Some of the narratives might be deeply uncomfortable as women sympathize and even uphold the practice, whilst others viscerally describe the trauma and pain that they endured. Digging deeper into efforts to eliminate FGM, professionals at the coalface of the end FGM movement provide their views on whether the practice can ever be eradicated.

This volume explores the key themes that emerged from the well-publicized criminal trials in the UK and the barriers that prevent the law from working effectively. One of the obstacles that are examined further is the legal double standard in criminalizing FGM whilst permitting female genital cosmetic surgery, which incites hostility and anger amongst FGM-performing communities.

Whilst ending FGM is imperative, this enlightening work reflects on the unintended consequences that stem from punitive efforts to criminalize a practice performed by often Black, migrant communities. Women describe their experiences of racism and Islamophobia in the context of police surveillance and hyperbolic media narratives.

In an effort of encouraging the abandonment of FGM, this publication highlights the need for the law to be accompanied by education initiatives at a grass-root level.
