A Public Policy Exchange Symposium 13 November 2013 - Public Policy Exchange
It has been estimated that over 20,000 girls under the age of 15 are at risk of FGM in the UK each year, and that 66,000 women in the UK are living with the consequences of FGM. More than 1,700 victims were referred to specialist clinics in the last two years, with at least 70 women and girls as young as 7 seeking treatment every month. FGM has been a criminal offence in Britain since 1985; however, there has not been a single prosecution to date. Furthermore, since 2003, it has been illegal to aid or participate in arranging FGM to be performed on another person inside or outside Britain.
